Fate of Harish Rawat-led government will be decided tomorrow with the Uttarakhand floor test as commanded by the Apex Court. Floor test proceedings have concluded today in Uttarakhand Assembly

To ensure a smooth functioning of the floor test that is to be conducted today from 11 am to 1 pm, all legislators and officials have been barred from carrying mobile phones to the House during the crucial floor test.

No vehicles will be allowed to enter the Assembly premises and all MLAs, including the Speaker, will have to walk down to the House from the main gate. The nine rebel Congress MLAs were on Monday barred from voting by the High Court. Currently.

Principal Secretary (Legislative Assembly and Parliamentary Affairs) of Uttarakhand government is overseeing conduct of the floor test. "The people are with us. Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Badrinath -- all are with us. We are all together, the people who are supporting us, we have their blessings, said Rawat.

The BJP has 28 MLAs, including Bhimlal Arya, whose loyalty is in doubt. Bhimlal arrived in the Assembly in compliance with the party whip.
