Uttarakhand HC reserves order on rebel Congress legislators

Dehradun, May 7 (IANS) The Uttarakhand High Court on Saturday reserved pronouncement of its verdict on the nine rebel Congress legislators for Monday.

The high court on Saturday completed hearing in a case filed by the rebel legislators over their disqualification from the state assembly. The MLAs were represented by senior lawyers of the Supreme Court (SC) C.A. Sunder and Vivek Dwivedi.

The rebel leaders apprised the court that they had not acted against their party and had resentment against the style of functioning of the then chief minister Harish Rawat.

This, they said, did not mean that their membership be cancelled by the state assembly Speaker.

The counsel for the Speaker, former union minister and senior lawyer Kapil Sibal, vehemently opposed the plea of the nine rebel legislators.

The Supreme Court has directed ousted chief minister Rawat to take the confidence vote on the floor of the House on May 10.
