The hearing of debate on vote counting of Bharatpur Metropolitan City-19 has been scheduled for Monday quoting RSS.

A division bench of Justices Om Prakash Mishra and Purushottam Bhandari has fixed the hearing date of the case for Monday as the hearing was not completed on Sunday.

They argued that the torn ballot papers should be declared invalid as the vote counting station was not seized rather the ballot papers were torn by the representatives of the political parties who were supposed to ensure security of the ballot papers.
During the hearing on July 17, the case was shifted for today.
Till today, hearing of the dispute on vote counting of Bharatpur-19 was conducted for five times.
