Monday, February 22, 2016

A Division Bench of Hyderabad High Court made it clear that it cannot direct the government to provide reservation to any community.

A Division Bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Dilip Baba Saheb Bhosale and Justice P.Naveen Rao dealing with a PIL filed by Gareeb Guide, a voluntary organization by its president G.Bhargavi said that it is the job of the government to take such decisions while the courts will only examine the legality of such decisions.

The petition challenged the constitution of AP Kapu Welfare and Development Corporation Ltd., with an aim of promoting the welfare of Kapu, Balija, Telaga and Ontari communities in the State leaving other communities like Brahim, Kamma, Vysya, Reddy who are living in poverty. The Division Bench has suggested the petitioner to approach the government while refusing to stay the operation of the Kapu Welfare and Development Corporation.
