The Union government has moved the Supreme Court today challenging the verdict of Uttarakhand High Court which struck down the imposition of President’s rule and revived the Harish Rawat-led congress government.
The Supreme Court asked the central government to approach its secretary general for listing its petition.
An apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice S.K. Singh asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to approach the court’s secretary general after he mentioned the central government’s plea challenging high court judgement.
The court said thereafter, Chief Justice T.S. Thakur will decide which bench will hear the matter.
It is likely that the central government’s plea may come up for hearing later in the day or on Monday.
Congress termed the Centre’s move as ‘an act of arrogance’. “You should not go on destabilising the democratically elected governments just on the premise you have the power and brute majority in Lok Sabha” Abhishek Manu Singvi remarked.
