TRS Leaders Call on Governor to Precipitate High Court Division
HYDERABAD: Exerting pressure on the Centre for neglecting the issue of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh High Court, the Telangana State MPs today called on Governor Narasimhan and submitted a memorandum to him on the issue.

The MPs, who met the governor, include K Keshav Rao, B Vinod Kumar, Jithender Reddy, K Kavitha, B. Narsaiah Goud and Visweshwar Reddy.
Talking to media at Raj Bhavan later, the MPs alleged that the AP Government was violating the AP Reorganization Act. The governor assured to take clarity from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on the issue and would take up the issue with the Centre.
“We met the governor, who ought to protect the Constitution and fulfill the issues of AP Reorganisation Act, they said.
They also slammed the AP Government for deliberately setting aside their appeal on the division of the high court. Despite one year of the division of the united state, the Centre was ignoring the plight of Telangana State and its people, they said.
The MP’salso deplored that Union Law Minister Sadananda Gouda did not respond to their repeated pleas, while AP chief minister kept mum on the issue. Both the Centre and Naidu should come out clearly as to where the new high court would come up, they demanded.
Being a new state, Telangana needs its own court, and the lack of which was causing a lot of problems to the people, they added. (NSS)
