The Chouhan-led Madhya Pradesh government will file a review petition against the Supreme Court's order on OBC reservations in the local body elections.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court asked the State Election Commission to begin the election process for 23,400 local bodies. The order also stated that the elections are to be held without the OBC reservation.
