Congress leader Kamal Nath moved Supreme Court seeking directions to Election Commission for random verification of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines in the upcoming Madhya Pradesh assembly polls.

The Supreme Court will hear the plea next week. The matter came up today before a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar.

In his petition, Mr Kamal Nath has sought a direction to the Election Commission to randomly verify VVPAT slips with EVM votes at 10 per cent of polling stations in every constituency.
