The state came under President's Rule two days back. Hearing a petition by Rawat, the court also said that all nine Congress rebels who were disqualified by the speaker will be allowed to take part in the vote. It said the result of the voting should be presented to the court on April 1.

The Supreme Court also today said it will hear next week a PIL challenging imposition of President's rule in Uttarakhand.

"Let it be listed next week," a bench comprising Chief Justice TS Thakur and Justices R Banumathi and UU Lalit said. The court's observation came when advocate ML Sharma sought urgent listing of the public interest litigation (PIL) on the issue.
