The Supreme Court on Monday sought a detailed reply from the Central government and the Election Commission in connection with a plea seeking to give more rights to the poll panel.

The plea was filed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ashwini Upadhyay.

A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra and also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, was hearing the plea.

Upadhyay's plea also sought a direction from the Supreme Court for making the process for the removal of three Election Commissioners (ECs), equal.
