‘Hope Modi will stop toppling govts’
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday after the floor test in the Uttarakhand assembly suggested a victory for the ruling Congress.
 
"Uttarakhand floor test outcome is a huge setback to Modi Govt. Hope they will stop toppling Govts now," Kejriwal tweeted after reports showed that Harish Rawat, the ousted chief minister of Uttarakhand, has won the floor test.
 
State has been under President's Rule since March 27 when the Congress government was dismissed by the Centreciting misgovernance.
 
The 72-member state assembly has been reduced to only 62 -- including one nominated member but excluding the speaker -- after the Supreme Court barred nine rebel Congress MLAs from voting in the floor test.
