Uttarakhand HC begins hearing of case on prez rule

uttarkhand-hcThe Uttarakhand political crisis has reached courts after the President Pranab Mukherjee has given his stamp of approval to the Union cabinet decision recommending president rule.

The Uttarakhand High Court (HC) today began hearing a petition filed by the Congress against imposition of President’s Rule.

Justice U.C. Dhyani is hearing the petition. Senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi is representing his party in the case.

The Uttarakhand assembly was kept in suspended animation after Pranab signed a proclamation under Article 356, just a day before Chief Minister Harish Rawat was slated to face a floor test to prove the Congress government’s majority.
