Uttarakhand HC to hear rebel Cong MLAs’ petition tomorrow

The Uttarakhand High Court will tomorrow resume the hearing on nine rebel Congress MLAs’ petition challenging their disqualification by the state Assembly Speaker.

The nine legislators will present their contention before the single bench of Justice U C Dhyani, which had on Saturday recorded the arguments of counsel Kapil Sibal appearing for Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal.

The Speaker had on March 27 disqualified the nine, including former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna, who spearheaded the rebellion against Chief Minister Harish Rawat, under the anti-defection law.

This had led to a political instability in the state and imposition of President’s rule.
