New Delhi: The Centre will challenge the Uttarakhand high court verdict setting aside President’s rule in the state in the Supreme Court on Friday.
“We’re filing an appeal challenging Uttarakhand HC order. The appeal is being prepared,it will be lodged in SC tomorrow morning, said attorney general Mukul Rohatgi.
“We’ve nothing to do with disqualified MLAs, we’re only concerned with the Presidential notification,” the attorney general said.
Delivering a major blow to the Modi government, the Uttarakhand high court on Thursday quashed the proclamation of President’s rule in the state and revived the Congress government headed by Harish Rawat, who has been asked to prove his majority in the assembly on April 29.
Coming down heavily on the Centre for the March 27 proclamation under Art 356, a division bench of the high court headed by Chief Justice KM Joseph said the imposition of President’s rule was contrary to the law laid down by the Supreme Court.
