New Delhi:  Delhi Lokayukta Justice Manmohan Sarin on Friday issued a notice to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and PWD Minister Rajkumar Chauhan for putting their photos on loan forms of the Delhi State SC/ST/OBC/Minority and Handicapped Finance and Development Corporation (DSFDC).

"A letter has been sent from our office directing the ministers to respond by December 10," an officer of the Lokayukta said.

On October 24, the Lokayukta issued notice to the DSFDC to explain why the new forms being sold for Rs.100 carried pictures of Dikshit and Chouhan.BJP legislator Harshwardhan had complained to the Lokayukta on the issue, accusing the ministers of using the DFSDC to gain publicity and woo voters.
