Centre moves SC against Uttarakhand verdict

The Supreme Court asked  Centre to approach its secretary general for listing its petition challenging an Uttarakhand High Court order setting aside president's rule in the state.

 
An apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice S.K. Singh asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to approach the court's secretary general after he mentioned the central government's plea challenging high court judgement.
 
The court said thereafter, Chief Justice T.S. Thakur will decide which bench will hear the matter.
 
It is likely that the central government's plea may come up for hearing later in the day or on Monday.
 
In a major blow to the BJP-led central government, the Uttarakhand High Court on Thursday set aside president's rule in the state, restoring Congress leader Harish Rawat as the chief minister, nearly a month after he was ousted.
