An Apex Court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice SK Singh asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to approach the court's secretary general after he mentioned the Central government's plea challenging High court judgement.

The court said thereafter, Chief Justice TS Thakur will decide which bench will hear the matter. It is likely that the Central government's plea may come up for hearing later in the day or on Monday.

In a major blow to the BJP-led Central government, the Uttarakhand High Court yesterday set aside President's rule in the state, restoring Congress leader Harish Rawat as the Chief Minister, nearly a month after he was ousted.
