The Congress party moved the Nainital high court on Monday against the imposition of President’s rule in Uttarakhand.
The BJP-led Centre cited a constitutional breakdown while imposing President’s rule in Uttarakhand on Sunday, a day before Harish Rawat was to take a floor test in the state assembly to prove his majority.
The Congress had said on Sunday it will challenge the decision in court and show that the Narendra Modi dispensation is out to “destabilise” governments in all the states ruled by the party.
Senior party leader Kapil Sibal had said that President’s rule was imposed a day before the floor test as the Centre knew that chief minister Harish Rawat would be able to prove his majority.
“We will explain the law to them in court. We will show the court that the people in the central government are the ones responsible for destabilising every state which is under Congress rule because their policy is to have ‘Congress mukt Bharat’,” he had said.
As Congress cried “murder of democracy” after losing power in second state after Arunachal Pradesh, Union finance minister Arun Jaitley countered by accusing the state government of “murdering” provisions of Constitution every day since March 18 when it “lost” majority in the assembly.
Speaking to media shortly after President’s Rule was imposed in the hill state, he said there were “cogent, relevent and extremely important grounds” on which the Union Cabinet came to the decision.
