December 08, 2007 20:53 IST
The Election Commission will meet on Sunday to consider the response sent by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi [Images] even as it sought a report on Congress President Sonia Gandhi's [Images] remarks about 'merchants of death.'
The full Commission headed by Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswamy will consider the reply of Modi in which he said his speech was entirely against terrorism and he had not justified the encounter killing of Sohrabuddin.
The chief minister said the Commission issued the notice to him on the basis of unverified and false media reports.
In his reply, Modi said though the state unit of BJP had sent separate complaints, no action has been taken by the EC.
