With a temporary High Court being proposed for Andhra Pradesh, close to the capital, Amaravati, a five-member committee of judges from the Hyderabad High Court is expected to visit Vijayawada next week.
Advocates protest in Kurnool
The committee will report to the Acting Chief Justice regarding the buildings suitable to house the High Court.
Meanwhile, a group of advocates staged protests in Kurnool demanding the High Court be set up in the state’s Rayalaseema area.
Earlier this month, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu wrote to the Hyderabad High Court's Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan, urging him to inspect and approve one of the buildings identified for housing the state's High Court.
Chandrababu is said to have urged for suggestions by the end of January so that the modifications to the buildings can be implemented by April, and the court can begin functioning by June this year.
