Centre moves apex court against HC order

 The Centre will, on Friday, move the Supreme Court against the Uttarakhand High Court’s verdict quashing the President’s rule in the state.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said he will mention the case before Chief Justice of India T S Thakur on Friday morning requesting a stay on the high court judgment that brought back Harish Rawat government and fixed April 29 for the floor test. 

“The High Court was wrong in quashing the Presidential notification. The Presidential notification is based on relevant material," Rohatgi said.

With the judgement coming as a set back for the central and government and the BJP, party chief Amit Shah, Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley and party general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya met to decide on the next course of action as they have a week’s time before the court-directed floor test takes place on April 29.  The Modi government’s top legal eagles Attorney General and Solicitor General also briefed the gathering on the legal import of the judgment and the need to challenge immediately in the apex court.  

Post Uttarakhand high court verdict, the BJP held a press conference in which it expressed its dissatisfaction with the order.

Rawat banks on independents

Three independents, two BSP MLAs and the lone Uttarakhand Kranti Dal member hold the key to Harish Rawat’s continuance as the Uttarakhand chief minister.

Reinstating Rawat as the chief minister , the Uttarakhand High Court has asked him to face a floor test on April 29. The disqualificationhas come as a shot in the arm for the Congress.
