"The BJP should learn that its resort to such methods at subterfuge to remove democratically elected state governments headed by opposition parties will not succeed," the party said in a statement.

The apex court approved the floor test held in the state assembly on Tuesday, paving way for Congress leader Harish
Rawat to return as Chief Minister.

The developments have come as a major loss of face for Narendra Modi government which had dismissed the Rawat dispensation and imposed Central rule after nine Congress MLAs sided with BJP on Appropriation Bill.
