Hyderabad: Taking cue from the recent statement made by Union Law Minister Sadananda Gowda that the division of High Court would be initiated if the Centre received the proposal, Telangana State government on Wednesday adopted unanimous resolution urging the Union government to create a separate High Court for the newly carved State.

Moving the resolution in the Assembly, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said that the division of High Court had been pending for the past one year. As per the AP Reorganisation Act, the High Court should have been divided immediately after the bifurcation of State but it was delayed due to various reasons, the Chief Minister said, adding that his government had already pleaded with the Centre to speed up the official process.

However, no step was taken towards this end so far, he said.Responding to Opposition leader K Jana Reddy’s suggestion to the government to include the allotment of accommodation for the new court in the resolution, the Chief Minister said the particular issue would be raised in the letter being written by him to the Union Law Minister requesting him to speed up the division process.

State Law Secretary would meet the Minister on Thursday and submit the memorandum,Chandrashekar Rao added.Supporting the resolution along with the Congress, AIMIM and the Left parties, BJP senior leader G Kishan Reddy demanded the government to stop the recruitment in the judicial bodies until the division of High Court was completed.
