Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said Congress’ win in the crucial trust vote in the Uttarakhand Assembly was a “huge setback” to the Narendra Modi government and hoped it will nor stop “toppling governments”.

“Uttarakhand floor test outcome is a huge setback to Modi Govt. Hope they will stop toppling Govts now (sic),” Kejriwal tweeted.

Congress today won the high-stakes trial of strength in the Uttarakhand Assembly.

The Union Cabinet had brought the state under Central rule on the ostensible ground that Congress Chief Minister Harish Rawat was indulging in horse-trading to retain power. Subsequently, nine rebel Congress MLAs were disqualified by Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal for siding with BJP.

The result of today’s floor test is expected to be formally announced tomorrow after a video recording of the 90-minute proceedings of the Assembly is presented in the Supreme Court in a sealed envelope, but Congress MLAs claimed victory and BJP MLAs conceded as much.
