The Supreme Court will next week hear Congress leader Kamal Nath's plea seeking random verification of VVPAT machines in the upcoming Madhya Pradesh assembly polls, news agency PTI reported. 

The matter came up on Friday before a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar, the report added.

In his petition, 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.

He has also said the voter list should be provided in text format.
