Sacked chief minister Harish Rawat on Tuesday appeares to have clinched the numbers in the floor test in the Uttarakhand Assembly with 33 of the 61 MLAs said to have voted for him.

With nine disqualified Congress MLAs kept away, Congress MLA Rita Arya claimed that 33 MLAs voted for Rawat while BJP MLAs conceded that their side got only 28 in a House with an effective strength of 61.

Under the Supreme Court-monitored proceedings, the result of the vote will be given to the court on Wednesday morning in a sealed envelope.
