Earlier, on April 22, the Apex Court had stayed the Uttarakhand High Court order to quash the imposition of President's rule in the state. Before passing a brief order,  a bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh recorded an undertaking given by Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi that the "Union of India shall not revoke the Presidential proclamation till the next date of hearing".
The Apex Court had clarified that it was keeping in abeyance the judgement of the High Court till the next date of hearing on April 27 as a measure of balance for both the parties as the copy of the verdict was not made available to the parties. The High Court judgement had also directed Rawat to prove his majority in the Assembly on April 29.
Imposition of President's rule in Uttarakhand dominated both the houses of Parliament on Monday and Tuesday with the Congress raising the matter in the Lok Sabha and creating ruckus in Rajya Sabha, where no meaningful business could be conducted amid uproar.
