The Supreme Court on Tuesday hears the Centre’s petition against Uttarakhand high court order and said that the order of revoking President’s rule in the state is adjourned for tomorrow.

The two-judge division bench had also asked several questions to the Centre asking it to justify imposition of President’s Rule.

The court has asked Centre to think about floor test and asked Attorney General that in view of Rameshwar judgement why not have a floor test under our supervision?

The apex court asked if disqualification of MLAs by the Uttarakhand speaker is a relevant issue for the purpose of imposing President’s Rule under Article 356 and proceedings in the Uttarakhand assembly can be taken note of by the President for imposing his rule.

An apex court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra had, on April 27, directed to continuation of President’s Rule in Uttarakhand.

The Centre had imposed President’s Rule in the state on March 27.
