now we see the BJP reviving it The term used to impose President’s Rule is the arising of a situation “in which the government of the state cannot be carried on in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution” This has never been properly interpreted Can allegations of corruption mean breakdown Or defection Or some other deficiency of governance perceived by a different party in power at the Centre In my view the only reason for imposing President’s Rule under Article 356 (read with Article 355) can be external aggression and internal disturbance which shakes the foundations of governance altogether as in Punjab (1987-90) Even external and internal disturbances do not require President’s Rule Article 352 allows emergency for a part of India In my view President’s Rule should be abolished If Union governance can do without President’s Rule so too the states Uttarakhand is a typical example The single judge in Nainital passed the right order on March 29 for a floor test except that he should have suspended President’s Rule (which the Supreme Court did later) On April 21 the division bench struck it down ordering a floor test on April 29 The Supreme Court should have allowed the floor test to happen But on April 22 Justices Mishra and Shiv Kirti Singh passed a stay order on a judgment which was not even before them on the say-so of the attorney general that the judgment was bad This gave the BJP time to purchase defection After Mishra and Singh saw the judgment they did exactly what the Uttaranchal High Court did: Order a floor test Of course the Supreme Court claims infallibility While ordering the floor test the Supreme Court drew on its Kalyan Singh and Jharkhand judgments unconnected with this situation The BJP got more time to regroup Eventually the Congress’s Rawat won The lessons from Uttarakhand are clear: One President’s Rule should never have been imposed to undermine federalism and electoral democracy; two it was imposed for party political gain only; three it was de facto defection which the constitutional amendment of 2003 had outlawed; four the governor behaved in a partisan manner; five the single judge rightly ordered a floor test but should have suspended President’s Rule (as the Supreme Court did later); six the division bench rightly struck down President’s Rule and ordered a floor test; seven the Supreme Court should never have stayed the division bench’s order; eight the Supreme Court gave time to the disqualified defectors but that didn’t work out; nine eventually there was a floor test The President’s Rule was revoked The next Supreme Court hearing is on July 12 Has the Supreme Court given the defectors another chance to catch up The writer is a senior Supreme Court lawyer He has appeared for the Congress in the Uttarakhand case pending in the Supreme Court For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News YRF Entertainment, South Africa were set a target of 331 runs by England but they were bowled out for 119 as England’s spin pair of Moeen Ali and Liam Dawson shared nine wickets amongst themselves.
