DEHRADUN: Chief Minister Harish Rawat chaired a cabinet meeting late on Thursday after the Uttarakhand High Court revoked President's Rule and restored the Congress-led government in the hill state.

Official sources said the cabinet cleared at least 11 proposals pending before the government.

These included re-appointment of over 6,000 guest teachers on a monthly stipend of Rs.15,000, the sources said.

The cabinet, according to the sources, also recommended an assembly session to be convened on April 29 when Rawat is to face a floor test to prove his legislative majority in the 70-member house.
