It further maintained that electoral process in a democracy is of utmost importance and the Supreme Court cannot interfere only to allay apprehension of a party. The Congress had moved the top court earlier in the day and were represented by lawyers Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Kapil Sibal in the top court. The voting for the two-phase Gujarat Assembly election ended on Thursday and counting of votes will be held on December 18.
