A new twist took place in the hearing on the petition filed by the Andhra Pradesh government in the Supreme Court challenging the AP High Court verdict to develop Amaravati as the sole capital of Andhra Pradesh. It is expected that the case will be heard on Tuesday. In fact, the case was to be heard before a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice UU Lalit.

However, the Supreme Court of India has decided to transfer the trial of the case to another bench as Supreme Court Chief Justice Justice UU Lalit has decided to withdraw from the hearing of the case. It was suggested to investigate before a different bench. Justice Lalit requested to allow the trial as soon as possible, which may take a few days.

Earlier, the High Court had ruled that Amaravati should be developed as the sole capital of Andhra Pradesh. Challenging this verdict, the AP government filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court. The petition was initially decided to be heard before a three-judge bench headed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice UU Lalit. Recently Justice Lalit withdrew from the hearing of this case and it will be heard before a different bench.
