The Supreme Court has agreed to give an urgent hearing to a plea of senior BJP leader and Madhya Pradesh Cabinet minister Narottam Mishra who was recently disqualified by the Election Commission.

The poll panel had, last month, disqualified Mr Mishra for three years over paid news charges, holding him guilty of filing wrong accounts of election expenditure related to articles and advertorials in media in the 2008 Assembly polls. A bench, headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar, said it will hear the plea this afternoon but the parties should come up with a remedy to the problem.

Former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Mr Mishra, said he has challenged the order of Madhya Pradesh High Court refusing to give an urgent hearing to his interim prayer to allow him to vote in Presidential elections.
