NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will on Wednesday hear Centre's plea against Uttarakhand High Court’s order which set aside the President's rule in the state.

A division bench comprising Justices Dipak Mishra and Shiva Kirti Singh had stayed the order till today.

The Nainital High Court order had restored Harish Rawat-led Congress government in the state, but the state came under President's rule again after Supreme Court stayed the High Court order.

The apex court had earlier clarified that it is keeping in abeyance the judgment of the High Court till the next date of hearing, which is today, as a measure of balance for both the parties as the copy of the verdict was not made available to the parties.

Appearing for the Centre, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had told the Supreme Court that while the Centre waits for a signed copy, Harish Rawat has already begun taking the decisions.

Rohatgi had requested the apex court for a stay on the Nainital High Court verdict that struck down President’s rule in Uttarakhand, and to direct the High court to deliver a signed copy of the judgement.
