DEHRADUN: Chief Minister Harish Rawat today termed as peoples' victory the Uttarakhand High Court quashing the imposition of President' rule in the state and reviving the Congress government headed by him.

"This is a victory of people of Uttarakhand. We welcome the verdict. The whole country knows who was behind the political instability in the state," Rawat said reacting to the HC verdict.

Coming down heavily on the Centre for the March 27 proclamation under Art 356, 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.

Rawat said people of the state suffered a lot due to the political instability.
