Election Commission sources said that Urban Development Minister Ram Kumari Jhankri has been sought after for clarification on her visit to the United States after the implementation of the election code of conduct.

"After the implementation of the code of conduct, government officials are not allowed to go on foreign trips without the permission of the commission," said a commission source.

The commission had conducted an investigation after a complaint was lodged against Minister Jhankri. The commission source said that they had sought an explanation after the initial investigation confirmed that she had gone abroad.

According to the commission source, Minister Jhankri also responded to the clarification sent by the commission. However, the answer has not been revealed by the commission. If the answer is not satisfactory, the commission may call her and ask for further explanation.

The Election Commission has assigned Commissioner Ram Prasad Bhandari the responsibility of monitoring and enforcing the code of conduct.
