The Supreme Court on Friday ordered the Uttarakhand High Court order, removing President's rule in the hill state and restoring Congress' Harish Rawat as chief minister, be kept in abeyance till April 27.
A bench headed by Justice Dipak Mishra, while passing its orders, said the high court will deliver its reasoned judgement by April 26.
The order came after an hour-long, heated argument on the central government's petition seeking stay of the high court order.
The Centre moved the apex court challenging the Uttarakhand High Court order quashing the proclamation of President's rule in the state.
Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi on Thursday said that he will mention the matter before the bench of Chief Justice T S Thakur in the morning tomorrow seeking a stay on the verdict, which has revived the Congress government headed by Harish Rawat.
"The High Court was wrong in quashing the Presidential notification. The Presidential notification is based on relevant material," he said referring to the some of the important grounds for challenge to the High Court judgement.
The High Court said the imposition of President's rule under Article 356 of the Constitution was contrary to the law laid down by the apex court.
"The Appropriation Bill, passed on March 18, was actually not passed and despite that the Speaker certified it which really means the government has fallen. By Speaker's order minority government was allowed to continue," Rohatgi said.
