SC reserves order on EC, Congres row over errors in Madhya Pradesh rolls

The Supreme Court on Monday reserved its order on a major row between the Election Commission and the Congress over alleged acts of omission and commission over the electoral rolls in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh.

However, the top court said it would separately examine a plea by Congress leaders Kamal Nath and Sachin Pilot on the need to verify at least 10% per cent of VVPATs to ensure poll purity.

The hearing on Monday was again marred by accusations and crossaccusations by Congress leaders, represented by senior advocate Kapil Sibal and EC counsels senior advocate Vikas Singh and Amit Sharma.
Sibal was flanked by senior advocates Vivek Tankha and Anoop G Chaudhari. Varun Chopra was assisting Sibal.
