KCR accuses Babu of delaying tactics in HC division

Sat, Jul 02, 2016, 05:53 PM
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday called on Governor ESL Narsimhan and sought his intervention to take up High Court division issue with the Centre and help find an amicable solution to the escalating lawyers protest against the suspension of judges. He demanded justice in the judicial officials posts, besides speedy bifurcation of the high court.

The Chief Minister, who met Narsimhan at Raj Bhavan, apprised him of the court situation and urged him to help solve the issue of the high court bifurcation and proportionate representation of Telangana Judges and judicial officials in the judicature of Hyderabad.

The meeting assumes significance as KCR’s Andhra counterpart, N Chandrababu Naidu, who responded to the issue in New Delhi after his China tour by meeting with Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Home Minister Rajnath Singh and others.

KCR is learnt to have complained against Naidu for adopting delaying tactics on the high court bifurcation and throwing the ball into the Centre’s court, saying that they have already allotted land in Amaravati – the capital city area in Andhra Praesh.

Though the Telangana Government offered to share the premises of the existing high court and showing a piece of land, the AP Government did not react and deliberately dragged on the issue for two years, KCR is understood to have informed the Governor.

He shared the contentious issue with the Governor even as Acting Chief Justice Bhosale asked the lawyers to end strike and resume duties and warned them of serious consequences otherwise.

According to the information, KCR appealed to the Governor to take up the issue with the Centre for an immediate solution, as Union Law Minister Sadananda Gowda had disowned any Central role in the High Court division.

The Governor is learnt to have assured KCR that he would take up the issue with the Centre, as he had already held separate meetings with Acting CJ and Telangana Advocate-General K Ramakrishna Reddy on the issue.

It is likely that the Governor is to make a visit to national capital if the situation so warranted. On the other hand, the protests of Telangana Advocates are continuing unabated for the bifurcation of high court and justice in judicial officials’ posts, including that of judges.
