The division bench of chief justice of Madhya Pradesh, Justice Ravi Malimath and Justice Vijay Kumar heard the petition and gave the next date of hearing on January 3.

Several petitions were filed in Jabalpur, Gwalior and Indore benches of the High Court after the state government issued an ordination, announcing to conduct Panchayat elections on the basis of reservation done in the year 2014.
