High Court orders notice to political parties on bandhs and agitations

Narayana of Hyderabad files Public Interest Litigation petition before High Court


A vacation bench of the Andhra Pradesh High Court comprising Justice NV Ramana and Justice Ramesh Ranganathan on Wednesday ordered issuance of notices to political parties in the State on the conduct of bandhs, hunger strikes etc. to press the demand for a separate or united State. The Bench was dealing with a writ petition filed in public interest by C Narayana, a resident of Penkacherla in Anandapuram mandal seeking a direction for constitution of a high power committee to look into the question of either granting a separate State or continuing a united State, and taking a decision under Article 71(D) of the Constitution.

The Division Bench wondered how it would enter the debate and what role it could play on the issue of the separation of unification of the State. While ordering notice to the various political parties, the bench made it clear that the enquiry would be limited to issues concerning law and order and not the larger questions raised in the petition.

Counsel PV Krishnaih, arguing the for the petitioner, pointed out that there were a number of Joint Action Committees being formed and that they should be reined in. He repeatedly referred to the statement of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on formation of separate State as the starting point on the present crisis. He was asked by Justice Ramana as to what role the Central Government had in the maintenance of law and order. The bench also pointed out that is limited inquiry would be on the question of the bandhs and hartals and not on the question of whether the steps taken by the government on the demand for a separate or unified state were adequate. It overruled certain objections and called for a counter from the State Government on the steps employed by it to maintain law and order.
