CRISIS IN THE HILLS
NDA government: Centre moves Supreme Court to challenge Uttarakhand HC verdict and retain President’s rule in the state
Congress: Party focus will be on garnering support to win the floor test. May take on Centre’s petition in SC
BJP: Will try to form government in any case — be it during the floor test by defeating Congress or, if President’s rule is upheld by SC, manipulate numbers to prove majority
Governor KK Paul: If the floor test doesn’t throw up a clear winner, he may invite the biggest party to try and form government. Paul may also recommend President’s rule.
