The apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Shiva Kirti Singh adjourned the hearing till Friday after Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said that the government needed a day’s time to “seriously consider” if President’s Rule could be lifted to allow ousted Chief Minister Harish Rawat to prove his majority in the house.

“I have conveyed the suggestion and have not received any instructions so far from government… The government is seriously considering SC’s suggestion to have floor test in Assembly to end the controversy,” Rohatgi told the court.

Meanwhile KM Joseph, the Chief Justice of the Uttarakhand High Court, has been transferred to the Andhra Pradesh High Court set up in Hyderabad, news agency ANI has reported.

A bench headed by Joseph had recently quashed President’s Rule in Uttarakhand where the Congress government headed by Chief Minister Harish Rawat has been in the midst of severe factionalism.

Joseph, who passed out of the Government Law College in Ernakulam, enrolled as an advocate in Delhi in 1982 and has practiced at the Kerala High Court as well. In July 2014, Joseph assumed charge as the Chief Justice of Uttarakhand.

At the same time, Acting Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale of the Hyderabad High Court has been posted as the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court.
