President’s rule was lifted in the hilly-state of Uttarakhand on late Wednesday evening.
The decision to life the President’s rule in the state came as the Centre acknowledged Harish Rawat’s victory in the floor test in the state assembly on May 10.
Congress’ Harish Rawat has won the Assembly floor test, Attorney General Mukul Rohtagi told the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
He also told the court that the Centre will now revoke President’s Rule in the state as Rawat got 33 votes out of 61 qualified members.
Meanwhile, Rawat was restored as the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand on Wednesday, 46 days after he was ousted by the Centre in a political battle that ended in a setback to Narendra Modi government. He will chair a cabinet meeting at Uttarakhand Secretariat in Dehradun at 9 AM on Thursday.
