Nainital: The Division Bench of the Uttarakhand High Court today stayed till April 7 the floor test in the Assembly that was scheduled for tomorrow.

The two-judge bench, responded to Centre’s petition challenging the order of the single judge U C Dhyani’s bench that had directed a floor test tomorrow.

Earlier, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, appearing on behalf of the Centre, opposed yesterday’s order by pointing out that the courts cannot interfere with the Presidential proclamation. “How can a floor test be ordered when a Presidential proclamation is in force and the Assembly is in suspended animation,” Rohatgi asserted.

The High Court has fixed April 6 for final hearing on the writ petition by ousted Chief Minister Harish Rawat to challenge the imposition of President’s Rule in Uttarakhand.
