"I have total faith in the judiciary. We will embrace whatever the apex court finally rules in case of Uttarakhand," he told reporters in his brief reaction to the Supreme Court order directing maintenance of status quo on the presidential promulgation in the state.

Echoing Rawat, senior party leader and former minister Indira Hridayesh also said her party respects the courts of law.

"We respect the judgement of courts. We believe in guarding the Constitution," she said. Similar reactions came from Opposition BJP too with the party's state president Ajay Bhatt saying, "We have faith in the Supreme Court and whatever final verdict it gives will be acceptable to us."

The Supreme Court yesterday extended its stay on the quashing of the President's rule while hearing the Centre's appeal against the Uttarakhand High Court judgement revoking Central rule in the hill state.
