Telangana BJP has warned that the party would hold a dharna at the CM’s camp office here if Chief Minister Chandrasekhar staged a protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on the High Court bifurcation issue.
Telangana BJP president Dr K. Laxman said the Centre was ready for bifurcation of the High Court but the CMs of both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were not being serious about this.
“We support the advocates JAC agitation demanding bifurcation of the High Court and withdrawal of options for Andhra origin judges seeking postings in Telangana. I agree it will cause injustice to Telangana. But the TS government was in deep slumber when the postings took place. There was no objection from the state government. Subordinate courts come under the purview of the states,” Dr Laxman said.
He said that though judges and lawyers were marching in the street by risking their jobs, the CMs of the two states were maintaining their cool. “BJP will stand by the advocates’ demand. The Centre will don the role of an elder brother and do justice to both the states. We will not compromise on the demand for postings of Telangana judges for Telangana,” he said.
Dr Laxman, BJP legal cell chief N. Ramachander Rao, MLC, Chin-tala Ramachandra Reddy, MLA, and others participated in the day-long dharna organised by the BJP legal cell at Indira Park on Tuesday demanding bifurcation of the High Court, withdrawal of suspension of 11 jud-ges and cancellation of postings of Andhra judges in Telangana.
Mr Ramachander Rao reminded Union law minister Sadananda Gowda that during his campaign for MLC elections in the state, he had promised to carve out a separate High Court within 100 days. “Yes, we promised to do this, and are ready to do so even today. But after Gowda’s statement, a PIL was filed in High Court. Subsequently, the state government identified a building in Gachibowli for location of the Telangana High Court. But when the issue came up before the CJ, he objected to this, saying rules do not permit two High Courts in one state and Andhra Pradesh sho-uld construct a new High Court in their st-ate,” Mr Ramachander Rao said.
The High Court split issue is still developing a political heat in Telangana state. Telangana advocates have been staging protest at Indira Park in Hyderabad in association with BJP legal cell.BJP leaders Laxman, MLA Chintala have participated in the protest and extended their support.
The High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for the States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh is the common High Court of the Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. High Court of Andhra Pradesh, as it was known earlier, was set up on 5 November 1956 under the State Reorganization Act 1956. The Andhra Pradesh High Court was renamed as High court of Hyderabad in view of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh state. From 2 June 2014, after the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 came into force, it has been renamed and serves as a common high court for both the states. A separate high court has to be established for Andhra Pradesh. After a separate High Court for Andhra Pradesh is established, High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad shall remain the High Court for Telangana state.[
The seat of the high court is in the administrative capital, Hyderabad and has a sanctioned judge strength of 49.
