A meeting of EC office bearers presided over by Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhi Prasad Yadav decided to give two more days to submit the corrected list of winners of PR election. EC Spokesperson Navaraj Dhakal said that the list of winners submitted by the NC, CPN-MC and RJP-N did not follow reservation clusters.
