President's Rule in Uttarakhand: Hearing to resume in High Court tomorrow
The Nainital High Court on Wednesday adjourned hearing on the Centre's decision to impose President's Rule in Congress-ruled Uttarakhand.
Dehradun: The Nainital High Court on Wednesday adjourned hearing on the Centre's decision to impose President's Rule in Congress-ruled Uttarakhand.
The high court is set to resume hearing in the case tomorrow.
Former chief minister Harish Rawat had filed the plea challenging the incumbent President's Rule in the state.
The Congress Party had on Friday filed a petition before the Uttarakhand High Court challenging the Centre's appropriation ordinance for the state.
A two-judge of the Nainital bench of the High Court had on Wednesday stayed the floor test for the Harish Rawat Government in the Uttarakhand assembly, which was scheduled for March 31, and decided to take up the matter on April 6.
The crisis in the hill state erupted on March 18 when nine Congress MLAs rebelled against the Rawat government, resulting in a flip-flop in the passage of the Appropriation Bill.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) met Governor K.K. Paul on the same day and staked claim to form a government.
However, the Centre imposed President's Rule last Sunday, a day before Rawat was supposed to take the floor test in the Assembly.
