May 9, 2014 - Hyderabad
A vacation bench of the Andhra Pradesh High Court comprising Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice M Satyanarayana Murty on Thursday stayed the judgment of a single judge. The clause II(viii) of the rules that permitted reserving certain seats to categories the categories BC-A, BC-D from women from the common poll category. Polling together the residuary seats be filled by BC candidates did not amount to creating a new class within the BC category, the judge said.

The single judge upheld the decision of Government and the present appeal was filed challenging the order of single judge. Now the appeal will be heard after June first week.
