Supreme Court will declare today the result of floor test held in Uttarakhand Assembly yesterday. Results will be declared at 10:30 AM after apex court receive it in a sealed cover. Harish Rawat-led Congress government sought a vote of confidence in the assembly yesterday following an apex court order. Soon after the floor test in Dehradun, Mr Rawat claimed that his government has won the vote of confidence. 
Congress sources claimed Mr Rawat has won the trust vote with the support of 33 lawmakers. With nine Congress rebels barred from voting, the strength of the 71-member assembly was 62. Sources said, 28 MLAs voted for the BJP.

President's Rule was lifted in the state for a few hours for the trust vote. Only MLAs eligible to vote and observers appointed by the Supreme Court were allowed in the assembly. 
Centre had imposed President's rule in the state on March 27, arguing that Harish Rawat government lost majority when nine rebel Congress MLAs voted against the state government's annual budget. Supreme Court, on Monday, confirmed the Uttarakhand High Court order barring nine rebel Congress MLAs from voting in the trust vote. They were disqualified by the Speaker a day before the Centre imposed President's Rule in Uttarakhand on March 27.
