New Delhi: In a new, but expected development in the Uttarakhand crisis, the matter was presented before the Supreme Court bench on Friday morning, seeking a stay on the HC order.

Earlier, after the Uttarakhand High Court on Thursday had set aside the Centre’s decision in March to place the state under President’s Rule, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had said the Centre will challenge the order in the Supreme Court.

The main strategy could be the fact that Harish Rawat’s own party men voted against him when he presented the budget.

In March, the Centre declared that it would govern Uttarakhand through Governor KK Paul. The decision came just one day before Harish Rawat was scheduled to prove his majority in the legislature.

The decision was signed off by the President Pranab Mukherjee, to which the court had said that ‘even the President can be wrong’.
