Hyderabad: The much-awaited bifurcation of Hyderabad High Court will be a reality in two weeks, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said on Saturday.
Participating in the debate on the Budget in the Council during Question hour, the Chief Minister said the people of Telangana would hear the ‘good news’ soon on the bifurcation of the High Court. He said that there were some vested interests coming in the way of bifurcation of the State apex court. However, the problem would not persist any longer as he would meet HC Chief Justice Kalyan Jyothi Sen Gupta, KCR stated.
There was a feeling among the people that the bifurcation of the State would remain incomplete unless the High Court was divided. Since the division of the HC was essential and unavoidable now, the Centre would take a final call on the issue, KCR stated. “I have urged the Centre to take an expeditious decision to divide the High Court.”
The Chief Minister said the Telangana Advocates’ JAC on Saturday called on Union Law Minister Sadananda Gowda at Delhi and urged him to take a speedy decision to bifurcate the High Court. KCR exuded confidence that Sadananda Gowda would come up with a decision in this regard in two weeks or so after taking a green signal from the Centre. The Advocates’ JAC had got an assurance from the Union Minister and a decision was expected very soon, he added.
