Row Over High Court Most Unfortunate. It is very much unfortunate to see disputes arising after the bifurcation of the united AP into two States.

It is very much unfortunate to see disputes arising after the bifurcation of the united AP into two States. The most thoughtless & ill-planned decision to divide the State, without actually looking into the possible consequences, has resulted in the present turmoil in every aspect for the two States. Above any other issue or dispute, the row over the bifurcation of High Court is quite needless. Even this issue also has not been dealt with properly by the people concerned in right earnest. In fact, no dispute should have arisen, since the capital remains the same for both the States for a period of 10 years, as per the Re-organisation Act. It is quite distressing and painful that the dispute has arisen even before the first anniversary of bifurcation. As the things go by, it is to be presumed that the continuation of present State Capital for the next 10 years will be very irksome and damaging, particularly for the AP state. The AP version that the shifting of AP High court to the jurisdiction of AP may not be possible so shortly, until the capital on its own is well established, is very much genuine. Without establishing State capital in a full- fledged manner, shifting or locating the High Court for new AP State to the AP areas, is just not correct or proper in real terms.

If necessary, a separate location may be identified either for TS or AP in Hyderabad, in case it is decided to bifurcate the High Court for two States separately. If the rulers or the authorities cannot follow and implement the Reorganisation Act, what is the fun or purpose of the Act? It is very much unnecessary that a row has cropped up. The issue of establishement of new High Court for the new State itself has gone to the High Court. What a litigation minds we have!

The High Court for the new AP should continue to be in Hyderabad only. However, the High Court may be bifurcated for the two states separately. Whether it is within the same existing building or choosing a separate building for one state may be considered, if needed. Whatever it may be, the AP government should start the process immediately to identify its location and further establish its High Court within its jurisdiction at the earliest, as the entire process may take some years.
