Reimpose Prez rule in AP: SG
Solicitor General: Reimpose President rule in AP, He asked the Centre to reimpose President’s Rule in the Andhra Pradesh and the dissolution of the Assembly to avoid a constitutional crisis.
Hyderabad: Solicitor General Mohan Parasaran has asked the Centre to reimpose President’s Rule in the Andhra Pradesh and the dissolution of the Assembly to avoid a constitutional crisis.
According to Rediff.com, Parasaran has said that there is no need of summoning both Houses of Parliament to endorse President’s Rule in Andhra which was imposed on February 28. It was imposed after N Kiran Kumar Reddy resigned from the CM post and the Congress to protest against the passage of AP Reorganisation Bill, 2013 which paved the way for Telangana's creation. The Union Cabinet has to take a political decision on the State – whether to have the state assembly dissolved, or to re-issue the promulgation of the President Rule.
Against this backdrop, the Union Ministry of Law Affairs sought the opinion of Parasaran on Governor E S L Narasimhan’s communication to the President to get the endorsement of the Parliament which should come within 60 days of the imposition of the rule. Parasaran has also briefed PM Dr Manmohan Singh on the legal issues of dissolution of the Assembly.
