Rawat appears to have won the floor test in Uttarakhand Assembly
Dehruadun: There was much jubilation in the Congress camp today as the sacked Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat today appears to have won the floor test in the Uttarakhand Assembly as it is claimed that 33 of the 61 MLAs have voted in his favour.
The result of the vote will be given to the court tomorrow morning in a sealed envelope.
Congress claimed that 33 MLAs voted for Rawat while BJP MLAs conceded defeat saying they got only 28 in a House with an effective strength of 61. Nine rebel Congress MLAs, who were earlier disqualified by the Assembly Speaker and barred from voting by an order of the High Court which was upheld yesterday by the Supreme Court did not cast their vote
