Uttarakhand Was Murdering Constitution Everyday Says Arun Jaitley

Even as Congress cried foul,Government today justified imposition of President’s Rule in Uttarakhand, saying the Harish Rawat government was”unconstitutional” and “immoral” since March 18 when the”failed” Appropriation Bill was shown as passed. While referring to March 18, he said in the 71-member Assembly, 67 members, excluding the Speaker, were present out of whom 35 wanted Division of Votes on the Appropriation Bill.The Division of votes was sought in writing in advance by the 35 members who also voted against the Bill, despite which the Speaker showed the legislation as passed, Jaitley said. “The Speaker said in writing that ‘the Division was sought but I treat the bill as passed’… This is for the first time in the history of Independent India that a bill is shown as passed even when it has been defeated. That was the first violation of the Constitution,” said Jaitley.
