Legal Battle Over Amaravati Intensifies: Supreme Court Adjourns Petitions to July 11
The Andhra Pradesh government's attempt to challenge the High Court's verdict on Amaravati has been met with a resounding refusal by the Supreme Court. Despite repeated pleas from the government's lawyers, the bench of Justices K M Joseph and B V Nagarathna stood firm, refusing to grant a stay on the high court verdict. The judges cited the need for a thorough and fair trial, and have scheduled the next hearing for July 11.
This decision marks a critical juncture in the ongoing battle over Amaravati's status as the sole capital of Andhra Pradesh.
Andhra Pradesh's Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy previously announced that his administration would proceed with plans to decentralize the state's administration.
