New Delhi : The Supreme Court has accepted the plea of the central government that it will get two more days to respond to a suggestion about the feasibility of holding a floor test in Uttarakhand assembly under its supervision.
A two judge bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh, posted the matter for hearing on Friday after Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said, he has conveyed in right earnest the court’s suggestion and it is under serious consideration by the government.
The bench recorded the Attorney General’s submission that the “Union of India is seriously considering the suggestion given by this court to have a floor test in Assembly to put an end to the controversy that has emerged in this case”.
It also that the sacked Chief Minister Harish Rawat’s counsel Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Manu Singhvi also submitted that that they have no objection if the central government accepts the suggestion.
Uttarakhand had come under president’s rule on March 27th, a day before the crucial trust vote in the state assembly on the grounds of “breakdown of governance”.
This decision was set aside by the Uttarakhand High Court last month and today chief justice KM Joseph, has been transferred to the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
