In a big setback for the NDA government at the Centre, Uttarakhand High Court on Thursday set aside President's rule imposed in the state. The high court has ordered that the status quo on the day the president's rule notification was issued be restored in the state.

A floor test will now be conducted in the Uttarakhand Assembly on April 29. However, the rebel MLAs will not be allowed to vote that day.

Here is the timeline:

March 18: 9 rebel Cong MLAs join BJP’s demand vote on Appropriation Bill. Speaker adjourns assembly, claims Bill passed by voice vote

March 19: Governor ask Rawat to seek trust vote on March 28. Speaker issues notice to rebels

March 26: Sting video shows CM Rawat offering money to rebels. Governor sends report to Centre. Union cabinet recommends Central rule

March 27: President approves Central rule. Speaker formally disqualifies rebels

March 28: Cong moves HC against imposition of President’s Rule

April 20: Uttarakhand HC slams Centre, says it was acting like a 'private company'

April 21: Uttarakhand HC quashes President’s Rule in Uttarakhand. Orders floor test in Assembly on April 29
