New Delhi, Nov 06 (CMC) The Election Commission (EC) Tuesday rejected Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy's plea to derecognise the Congress as a party for extending a Rs.90 crore loan to Associated Journals Ltd, publisher of the now defunct National Herald. "Your letters dated November 3 and November 5 are not maintainable," the EC said in a letter to Swamy.
The EC further told Swamy in its letter: "If the party (Congress) has not complied with any of the provisions of the Income Tax Act, as alleged by you, that matter does not fall within the jurisdiction of the commission."

When asked about his response to EC verdict, Swamy told television channels that he will go to courts.
