Uttarakhand row: Supreme Court to resume hearing on Centre’s plea

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court will on Wednesday hear the Centre’s plea against Uttarakhand High Court’s order on lifting the  President’s rule in the state till April 27.

Defending Modi government’s decision  of imposing President’s rule in Uttarakhand , Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi   had requested the Supreme Court for a stay on the Uttarakhand High Court verdict that struck down President’s rule in Uttarakhand, and to direct the High court to deliver a signed copy of the judgement as Harish Rawat has already begun taking the decisions.

A bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh had stayed the High court order after Centre filed a petition that it will not revoke the President’s rule.

Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice K.M. Joseph and Justice V.K. Bist criticised Modi government for imposing President rule in Uttarakhand and  ordered a floor test on April 29 and restored the state government until then. “…Article 356 has been imposed contrary to the law laid down by the apex court, and allowed restoring of Harish Rawat-led Congress government in the state

Imposition of President’s rule in Uttarakhand stalled both the houses of Parliament on Monday and Tuesday with the Congress raising the matter in the Lok Sabha and creating ruckus in Rajya Sabha, where no meaningful business could be conducted amid uproar
