Centre's decision 'thrown in the dustbin', snides Shiv Sena on Uttarakhand HC verdict
New Delhi: A day after Uttarkhand High Court quashed centre's decision to impose president rule in the state, Shiv Sena hit out at its ally BJP saying " While the Centre proclaims itself a legal pandit but their law was thrown in the dustbin by the High Court."
Taking swipe at the BJP, the Shiv Sena in its editorial mouthpiece Saamana said “The Centre cannot impose itself forcefully on non-BJP states, If it tries to do so it will soon suffer consequences. The court’s verdict proves that the Government acted out of “political selfishness,”
Reacting sharply into centre's decision to impose president rule in the state, Saamna said, “Assembly is the place where majority is proved but chief minister Harish Rawat was prevented from doing so. The High Court has rightly squashed President’s rule in the state and the Centre went though ‘Vastraharan’ in Uttarakhand.”
“The President’s image has also been dented,” added the Sena mouthpiece.
The Modi government was left red-faced after the Uttarakhand High Court struck down the declaration of President's Rule in the state.
The high court also upheld the disqualification of nine dissident Congress legislators, saying they have to pay the price for the “constitutional sin” of defection.
Meanwhile, centre has moved Supreme Court challenging the High court order.
The high court has gone by the parameters laid down in the historic S.R. Bommai judgment of 1994, delivered by a seven-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court.
