Hyderabad: The PIL bench of the AP High Court on Wednesday directed the Central Government to inform the court as to whether a decision on the state bifurcation has been taken. It also asked the state government to respond with details of the steps taken by it to meet the situation consequent upon the on-going agitations in the regions of the state.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Kalyan Jyothi Sengupta and Justice KC Bhanu also made clear its disapproval of the government employees participating in a strike. Dealing with a public interest writ petition in which notice was ordered on Monday the bench pointedly asked the counsel for AP NGO (Surender Rao) as to how the government employees were concerned with the politics of bifurcation.

The bench also made clear that while the state NGOs could possibly agitate for service grievances they could not protest on political issues. “If they want they are free to join a political agitation after they resign from their government employment”, the Chief Justice said. The bench pointedly asked the counsel of the AP NGOs as to how they could go on strike when there was no official decision from the government on this regard. The bench reiterated that the employees must call off their strike or face consequences and adjourned the matter to Monday.
