Dehradun:�The Supreme Court will announce the result of the trust vote in Uttarakhand,which has been under President's Rule since March.

BJP quickly admitted defeat after 33 legislators reportedly voted for Rawat while the opposition mustered only 28 votes in a house whose strength had been reduced from 72 to 62.

Nine Congress rebels legislators were not allowed to vote.

"I thank the Supreme Court, the democratic forces, the people of Uttarakhand and the gods. Uttarakhand will be victorious tomorrow," Rawat said.

Rawat, looking happy and confident as he emerged from the assembly after the vote, thanked "gods and the people" for standing by him and claimed that it would become evident on Wednesday that "Uttarakhand has won".
