downloadTahlka news Bureau, New Delhi:�The Centre will file its reply in the Supreme Court on Friday after the apex court asked the Narendra Modi government to consider a floor test in Uttarakhand. A Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra, had on April 27, directed to continue the President's Rule for the while. The two-judge division bench, comprising of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Shiva Kirti Singh, had also asked several questions from the Centre asking it to justify imposition of President's rule in the state. The court on May 3 had asked the Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to have a floor test under SC supervision. The Supreme Court also sought to know whether disqualification of MLAs by the Uttarakhand Speaker is relevant for the purpose of imposing President's rule under Article 356. The Court on May 4 suggested that it may order a 'composite floor test' for Uttarakhand Assembly as was directed by the top court in 2005 in Jharkhand when BJP leader Arjun Munda had challenged the government formation by JMM chief Shibu Soren. "The floor test (in Uttarakhand Assembly) can be on Jharkhand Model," a bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh.
