"The hearing has been concluded.  I will pronounce the judgement  at 10.15 AM on May 9," Justice U C Dhyani said in brief remarks counsel at the conclusion of nearly three hours of arguments on both sides.

Earlier, Congress hailed the Supreme Court's ruling to allow floor test in the Uttarakhand assembly, terming it a 'victory of constitutional democracy'.

The party also demanded an apology from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Supreme Court yesterday cleared the decks for ousted Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat to prove his legislative majority in the state assembly on Tuesday and said that the nine disqualified rebel Congress legislators would not be allowed to vote.

"Landmark history was written today as constitutional democracy achieved a shining victory with a path-breaking verdict of Supreme Court in case of Uttarakhand," said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
