“We are not begging. It is our just demand as we lost capital to Amaravati,” she said, adding that Rayalaseema Advocates Joint Action Committee (JAC) has decided to continue the protest till the government accepts the demand of the people of Rayalaseema for setting up of High Court in the region.
The JAC has unanimously passed a resolution to boycott the courts in four districts up to March 5. She also warned the government if High Court is not considered to Kurnool, then agitation for separate statehood will be launched.
The Association President addressed the Advocates JAC meeting held at Kurnool United Club on Saturday. Advocates from Kurnool, Kadapa, Anantapur and Chittoor participated in the meeting. The JAC Chairman S Mastan Vali demanded the state government to set up High Court at Kurnool. “It is not the lavish demand of the people of Rayalaseema; it is a just demand as per the Sri Bagh Pact, he said.
Recalling the setting up of High Courts at various places in the country, he said that High Courts were set up at various places at Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Kerala, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. How far it is fair to setup the High Court at the capital city where all key departments are set up, he asked.
The JAC chairman further said that though the elders of all political parties belong to Rayalaseema region, they are least concerned for the development of their own segments. They are only interested in their self-prosperity rather than working for the welfare of the people of Rayalaseema, he slammed. The JAC has unanimously decided that all advocates of JAC will go to Penukonda of Anantapur to gherao Chief Minister on February 22.
It has also resolved to continue the hunger strike and Chalo Amravati. The JAC members also conducted a massive rally up to Collectorate from Raj Vihar Centre and formed a human circle.
