Nainital |Dealing a major blow to Modi government, the Uttarakhand High Court today quashed the imposition of President’ rule in the state and revived the Congress government headed by Harish Rawat, who has been asked to prove his majority 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 K M Joseph said the imposition of the President’s rule was contrary to the law laid down by the Supreme Court.

Uttarakhand High Court asks Centre to consider putting the revocation of President’s Rule on hold for a week.

The Uttarakhand High C decision is a victory of people of the state, says Harish Rawat.

The whole country knows who were behind the political instability in Uttarakhand; BJP is becoming irrevalent in the state: Rawat.
