The Nainital High Court on Wednesday will hear Uttarakhand Chief Minister’s Harish Rawat’s plea against the incumbent President’s rule in the state today. The High Court will hear the case today and tomorrow as well.
Today the court will possibly give a verdict in regard with the Governor rule imposed in the state, whereas the plea against budget ordinance will be heard tomorrow.
The Congress Party on Friday had 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.
