New Delhi, March 29 (IANS) The Congress on Tuesday welcomed the Uttarakhand High Court’s decision that the Congress government in the state must be given a chance to prove its majority on the floor of the assembly.

The high court on Tuesday ordered a floor test in the assembly on Thursday and gave Chief Minister Harish Rawat a chance to prove his legislative majority. The state was put under President’s Rule on March 27, a day before Rawat was to prove his majority.

“We all believe in the judiciary. We welcome the high court’s decision to give a new date for floor test. The court has upheld the decision that the Congress should be given a chance to prove majority on the floor of the house on March 31,” said Congress leader Ambika Soni.
