Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday said Uttarakhand was a text book case for enforcing President's Rule.
Jaitley, who briefed President Pranab Mukherjee after the union cabinet recommended President's rule in the state, said: "I believe there cannot be a better example (for implementing President's Rule).
"For the last nine days, the constitution was being violated in Uttarakhand, " he said.
Jaitley said the appropriation bill was deemed as passed by the speaker of Uttarakhand assembly though more that half the members present demanded a division, which would have led to recorded voting.
"On 18th, 68 MLAs were present, 35 of them had demanded a division.
"The MLAs said they had voted against the appropriation bill. This is the first example in independent India that a failed bill was announced passed without voting, " he said.
President's Rule was imposed in Uttarakhand on Sunday, days after nine Congress legislators rebelled against Chief Minister Harish Rawat.
The state assembly was to consider a crucial trust vote on Monday.
