Minster of Law and Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad made a key announcement in the Parliament. The Cabinet Minister responded after the TRS MPs demanded the partition of the Joint High Court. The TRS MPs alleged that prejudice is being shown towards Telangana in the appointing High Court Judges. They also stressed the fact that, according to the bifurcation bill, Telangana should be having a separate high court.
Responding to these comments, Cabinet Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, ‘We need to setup the Andhra Pradesh High Court in their new capital. I was informed by AP CM Chandrababu about the availability of four buildings to accommodate the high court establishment temporarily. I asked the Hon’ble Chief Justice of the High Court to approve one of the building.
Though we can transfer the High Court on a temporary basis, it would take a long time to set up a high court permanently. I request both the states to be patient and be loving towards each other until then. And moreover, the appointment of judges is made by a collegium. ‘
Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh TDP MP, Sujana Chowdary expressed his displeasure over the comments made by TRS MPs. ‘Partition of Joint High Court isn’t the only issue here. There are many more issues like Special Status, Reimbursing Revenue deficit, and much more that needs to be addressed’.
