Hyderabad: The AP High Court premises witnessed high drama on Wednesday as advocates from Telangana and Seemandhra regions vied with each other to voice their support and oppose over bifurcation of the State. Notwithstanding the counseling by the Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta of the HC to both sides to show restraint, the T advocates JAC asked the lawyers in the 10 districts of the region to boycott courts besides giving a call for “Chalo High Court.”

The Seemandhra advocates decided to form a human chain around the court premises opposing State’s bifurcation but later postponed the move. Police imposed Section 144 in and around the HC premises. The T advocates boycotted courts and tried to proceed to the HC to disrupt the attempt of the Seemandhra advocates to organise a human chain.

The police took heavy security measures in the area and allowed advocates of Seemandhra region only after verifying their identity since the T advocates had decided to boycott work on Wednesday. However, when some T advocates tried to proceed towards the HC building were stopped by the police and barred from entering the premises. The T advocates stoutly protested. However, the police physically dragged them and pushed them in to a police vehicle and whisked them away.

Seemandhra Advocates convernor C V Mohan Reddy said that Chief Justice had asked leaders from both sides to sit and decide over the issue. However none from TJAC turned up for the meeting. While pointing out that there was a possibility of reaching out to an agreement, he said that both sides should set up timing of their agitation, so that other group would not have problem.
