Kejriwal on Uttarakhand HC verdict: Huge embarassment for Modi


By

New Delhi: Terming the Uttrakhand High Court order setting aside President's rule in the state as a "huge embarrassment" to the Narendra Modi Government, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said the Prime Minister should stop "interfering with elected governments and respect democracy".

"This is a huge embarrassment to Modi Govt. He shud stop interfering wid elected govts and respect democracy (sic),"
Kejriwal tweeted.

The Uttarakhand High Court today quashed the imposition of President's rule in the state and revived the Congress government headed by Harish Rawat, who has been asked to prove his majority on 29 April.

Coming down heavily on the Centre for the 27 March proclamation under Article 356 of the Constitution, a division bench of the high court headed by Chief Justice K M Joseph said the imposition of the President's rule was contrary to the law laid down by the Supreme Court.
