Chittoor police move HC to cancel Narayana bail

2

The Chittoor district police have filed a petition in the High Court on Wednesday seeking cancellation of former minister P Narayana’s bail.

Narayana was arrested by the police on Tuesday at Hyderabad and was produced in the government general hospital in Chittoor for medical check-up. Later, he was produced before the magistrate in the intervening night of Tuesday-Wednesday.

The magistrate granted bail to Narayana as the advocates produced papers before the magistrate stating that Narayana had resigned as chairman of the Narayana Group of Educational Institutions in 2014.

The advocates of Narayana said that Narayana was not connected with the educational institutions and had no relationship with any of the institutions, as alleged by the police. He was arrested in connection with the leakage of SSC question paper on April 27.

The police alleged that Narayana encouraged his school teachers to leak the question paper to defame the government. The Narayana school teachers have allegedly taken support of some government teachers in the process.

In all, the government arrested 60 teachers both from the Government schools and the Narayana schools. It was alleged that Narayana was behind the conspiracy that leaked the SSC question paper one and a half hours after the examination started.

As the Chittoor district court granted bail to Narayana, the police moved the high court seeking cancellation of the bail. The police pleaded with the court to cancel the bail so as to investigate the case and arrest the accused. The police also alleged that Narayana might influence the accused and witnesses as well, if bail is given.

It is to be seen how the high court would react to the police petition!

Andhra HC orders development of Amaravati as capital

1

In a setback to Jagan Mohan Reddy-led government’s plans to develop three state capitals, the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday directed it to complete implementation of Amaravati capital city master plan in six months.

The court also asked the government to hand over developed plots with all basic amenities to farmers within three months. The government was also asked not to alienate lands in Amaravati for any work other than development of state capital.

It also made it clear that the Assembly has no powers to make laws on state capitals.

A bench of three judges headed by Chief Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra pronounced the judgment on 75 petitions filed by Amaravati farmers and others challenging the government’s move for trifurcation of state capital.

The court directed the government to keep it informed about the development works taken up as per capital city master plan.

Counsel of one of the petitioners told media persons that the bench directed the government not to shift any office from Amaravati as the earlier interim order in this regard will remain in force.

The government was directed to pay Rs 50,000 each to the petitioners towards legal costs.

The Andhra Pradesh government on Nov 22, 2021 repealed two laws enacted last year to create three state capitals but announced that it will come out with a new comprehensive legislation.

The Assembly passed Andhra Pradesh Decentralization and Inclusive Development of all Regions Repeal Bill 2021. The Bill repealed the Andhra Pradesh Decentralization and Inclusive Development of all Regions Act 2020 and the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region development Authority Repeal Act 2020 Act.

The government, however, had made it clear that it had not gone back on the decision to have administrative, legislative and judicial capitals at Visakhapatnam, Amaravati and Kurnool respectively.

The development had come as the High Court was to resume hearing on a batch of petitions challenging the two legislations made in 2020.

After coming to power in 2019, the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) had reversed the decision of the previous TDP government to develop Amaravati as the only state capital. This had triggered massive protest from farmers of Amaravati, who had given 33,000 acres of land for the capital and were hoping to reap its economic benefits.

The farmers, women and others have been protesting against the trifurcation for more than 800 days.

Soon after the High Court pronounced its orders on Thursday, celebrations erupted in Amaravati. Farmers hailed the court orders as victory of truth and justice.

Ticket Pricing Issue: AP Govt ‘Delay Tactics’ Continue

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court has been furious against the GO 35 that is issued by the AP government to control the ticket prices in the state. The High Court asked the government to suspend the GO but the AP government has been strict on its stand. To delay this, a Committee has been formed and the government told the Court that the Affidavit will be filed based on the report that will be submitted by the Committee. The AP High Court postponed the next hearing to February 10th.

This makes it clear that the Sankranthi 2022 releases would not receive any relief about the flexible ticket pricing in the state. The AP government challenged the High Court’s decision in a Division Bench forming a Committee for the same. The Committee is expected to meet once again soon and they would submit the report to the government of Andhra Pradesh. This makes it clear that AP government is keen to delay the issue in the court. Tollywood will have to wait till the issue gets resolved in the court.

Jagan govt received a jolt in High Court over fee regulation!

0

The YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh headed by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy suffered a jolt yet again in the AP High Court on Monday (today).

This time it was on regulating fees in private schools and junior colleges in Andhra Pradesh. The YSRCP government has issued GO 53 and GO 54 on August 24 this year fixing fees for students in private schools and junior colleges.

The High Court on Monday struck down both the GOs issued by the state government.

The managements of private schools and junior colleges challenged these GOs in the High Court arguing that the fees fixed by the state government were ‘irrational’ and the managements cannot run institutions with the lower fees prescribed by the state government.

They brought to the notice of the High Court that the state government unilaterally fixed fee structure in schools and colleges without taking into consideration the costs incurred by the managements to provide infrastructure facilities and the expenditure incurred on salaries and other expenses.

They contended that parents sent their children to private schools only after they feel satisfied with fees collected from them.

Andhra HC allows Amaravati farmers to hold public meeting in Tirupati

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Wednesday allowed farmers of Amaravati region to organise a public meeting in Tirupati on December 17.

The court gave the permission for the meeting subject to certain conditions. The organisers were directed to hold the meeting from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and follow Covid-19 protocol.

The court order came a day after the mega foot march by farmers and women of Amaravati to demand that Amaravati be retained as the only state capital concluded in Tirupati.

After covering 450 km in 44 days, the ‘Mahapadyatra’ from Amaravati to Tirupati ended at Alipiri, the foothills of Sri Venkateswara temple.

The Amaravati Parirakshana Samithi and Amaravati Joint Action Committee wanted to organise the public meeting at the end of the ‘Mahapadyatra’ but Chittoor district police denied the permission.

Following this, they approached the High Court. The counsel on behalf of petitioners argued that the foot march concluded smoothly without any law and order problems

The government submitted to the court that if the public meeting was allowed, it could lead to clashes on regional lines. It brought to court’s notice certain video clips of farmers allegedly attacking police during the ‘Mahapadyatra’.

The court rejected the arguments of the government and allowed the farmers to conduct the meeting. The organisers were directed to avoid making comments which could lead to law and order problems.

Rayalaseema Hakkula Sadhana Samithi, a group fighting for the rights of Rayalaseema region, wanted to organise a public meeting the same day but the court made it clear that two meeting can’t be allowed the same day and suggested it to hold the meeting on some other day.

Chittoor is part of Rayalaseema region. As per the decision of the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) government in 2019, the state will have three state capitals.

It proposes to develop Kurnool in Rayalaseema as the judicial capital and Visakhapatnam in north coastal Andhra as administrative capital while Amaravati will be retained only as the legislative capital.

Farmers of 29 villages of Amaravati region, who had given 33,000 acres of land for development of the state capital when Telugu Desam Party (TDP) was in power, have been protesting against the government move for more than 700 days. They want Amaravati to be developed as the only state capital.

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday granted interim anticipatory bail to retired IAS officer K. Lakshminarayana in a case relating to alleged irregularities that took place in the AP State Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC) during the previous TDP regime.

The former director of APSSDC had approached the high court for anticipatory bail. The court granted him the same for 15 days.

The CID, probing the alleged irregularities, had searched the house of Lakshminrayana in Hyderabad on Friday.

The former bureaucrat, who was a key official in the TDP government headed by Chandrababu Naidu, fainted during the CID searches and was admitted to a hospital in Hyderabad.

The CID had also served a notice on Lakshminarayana directing him to appear before it at its headquarters in Mangalagiri for further inquiry on Monday.

The CID is probing misappropriation of Rs 242 crore in executing one of the projects. The agency filed an FIR against the retired IAS officer and 25 others including former Special Secretary, Skill Development, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Department, and the then ex-officio Secretary to Chief Minister and MD and CEO of APSSDC, Ghanta Subba Rao.

They were accused of alleged diversion of Rs 242 crore by Designtech and Siemens Projects through various shell companies.

The APSSDC claimed that it had procured software worth Rs 242 crore from Designtech Systems but the probe revealed that no such software was provided to it.

On a complaint by APSSDC’s current Chairman K. Ajay Reddy, the CID started a probe in July and registered a case on December 9 under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and Prevention of Corruption Act.

Meanwhile, the CID on Monday registered a case against Vemuri Radhakrishna, managing director of Telugu newspaper ‘Andhrajyothi’ and news channel ABN-Andhrajyothi.

A zero FIR was registered at CID police station in Mangalagiri on a complaint by a CID official that Radhakrishna, along with some others, had reached Lakshminarayana’s house in Hyderabad on December 10 when the searches were being conducted and they tried to obstruct them from discharging their official duties.

The FIR has named Radhakrishna, a lawyer, a reporter and a videographer.

Jagananna Vidya Deevena scheme receives a jolt in AP High Court!

0

The YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh headed by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy received yet another jolt in AP High Court on Monday (today).

The High Court dismissed the review petition filed by Jagan government on Jagananna Vidya Deevena scheme.

Under this scheme, the AP government reimburses fees for students pursuing education in schools and colleges. The government credits amount in the bank accounts of mothers of students.

The managements of private educational institutions challenged the decision of the state government to credit the amount in the bank accounts of mothers instead of college managements in the High Court.

The High Court single bench judge had earlier quashed the orders of the AP government and directed the government to credit the amount in the bank accounts of college managements.

The AP government challenged the single judge orders before the High Court division bench and filed a review petition.

The division bench of the High Court has dismissed AP government’s review petition on Monday and directed the government to credit the amount in the bank accounts of college managements.

The Jagan government is accused of crediting amount in the bank accounts of mothers with an eye on ‘vote bank politics’.

On November 30 recently, CM Jagan transferred Rs 686 crore towards third instalment of Vidya Deevena scheme into the bank accounts of 9.87 lakh mothers of 11.03 lakh students.

Andhra government withdraws controversial order on women police

0

The Andhra Pradesh government on Thursday conveyed to High Court that it was withdrawing an order designating Grama Mahila Samrakshana Karyadarsis or women protection secretaries as ‘Mahila Police’.

During the hearing of a petition challenging the order, the government informed the court it is taking back the same.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra and Justice A.V. Sesha Sai was informed that the government is working details as to how to use the services of the women. The court was told that an affidavit would be filed in this regard.

Following this, the court adjourned the hearing to the next week.

In October, the court had directed the government to file a counter, explaining that on what grounds it proposed to designate ward and village women protection secretaries as mahila police and entrust them certain responsibilities supposed to be discharged by the Police Department.

The court had issued notices to the Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary, Home, and Chairpersons of the Andhra Pradesh Police Service Commission (APPSC).

A. Umamaheswara Rao of Visakhapatnam had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the order on the ground that it violates police recruitment board rules.

In June, the state government elevated the women protection secretaries to Mahila police constables.

Close to 15,000 women were appointed by the District Collectors in the village and ward secretariats that were created by the Jagan Mohan Reddy government in July 2019.

Under the plan, the grama mahila samrakshana karyadarsis/ward mahila samrakshana karyadarsi were given 15 responsibilities such as reporting crime and law and order issues to local police SHO, sensitising women on crimes, domestic violence, cybercrime, stress management, gender-based violence, safeguarding public properties and others.

So far, the GMSK/WMSKs used to work assisting the police in solving women-related problems in both urban areas and villages.

The redesignation exercise had placed the women protection secretaries on par with the women constables of the state police force.

The order had stated that the mahila police constables will be the representatives of the nearest police station and be given the same uniform as woman constables. They will enjoy the same powers and responsibilities as constables. As per the order, additional head constable posts will also be created for the mahila police.

AP High Court slams Kuppam cops for preventing TDP election campaign

1

The AP High Court took a serious view of the hyper enthusiasm of the police in Kuppam. It slammed the Kuppam police for trying to obstruct the TDP leaders from conducting their election campaign. It strongly reprimanded Palamner DSP for his actions, which the court said were uncalled for.

Palamaner DSP has asked the TDP candidates contesting the elections to the Kuppam Municipal Council to obtain permission before conducting an election campaign. The DSP even served a notice on the TDP leaders. The TDP approached the High Court seeking action against the DSP. The court, which examined the complaint, severely criticised the police for putting spokes in the election campaign of a candidate contesting elections.

The police action has come in for all round condemnation. Many analysts slammed for police for preventing the TDP from campaigning. Campaigning during election is a matter of right and the police have no right to stop the campaigning. Political analysts say that the police were being ‘more loyal than the king. They slammed the police over-action.

Curiously, no such rules seem to apply for the ruling YSRCP. The very same police have neither served a notice on the YSRCP nor asked it to obtain permission to hold an election campaign. The rules seem to apply only to the TDP. Now the situation is likely to change after the High Court’s censure.

The High Court issued notices to MLA as well as AP home secretary and AP DGP and asked them to file a counter within three weeks.

The police booked cases against Udayabhanu for the kidnapping of officials and also obstructing officials from performing duties.

These cases were booked in Vastavai, Nandigama and Chillakallu police stations.

However, the Jagan government dropped all these case at one go by issuing a single GO.

AP High Court warns Jagan govt of contempt proceedings!

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Tuesday (today) warned Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy led YSRCP government of initiating contempt proceedings against it if it fails to clear NREGA arrears by September 15.

The High Court expressed severe anger at the AP government for failing to implement its orders issued two weeks ago in this case.

The High Court pointed out that it had issued orders to clear NREGA bill arrears of 494 cases two weeks ago.

The High Court expressed anger at AP government clearing bills of only 25 cases even after two weeks.

The High Court gave one-week deadline for AP government to clear the NREGA dues or face contempt proceedings.

The Jagan government earlier claimed that the dues were because of Centre failing to release the funds. But the Centre filed an affidavit in the High Court stating that it does not owe any dues to AP government and cleared all the bills that were submitted by AP government.

The Centre’s affidavit exposed AP government’s lies and also exposed that the AP government diverted NREGA funds released by the Centre for other purposes.

AP High Court directs Jagan govt to pay MNREGA arrears in 2-weeks

1

The Andhra Pradesh High Court came down heavily on YSRCP-led government in AP led by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy over defaulting on payment of wages to rural workers under the Centre’s MNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Act) scheme.

The AP High Court on Monday (today) ordered the Jagan government to clear MNREGA arrears within two weeks. The court issued interim orders in this regard.

The AP government informed the court that it has paid Rs 413 crore to MNREGA workers so far and there is a balance of Rs 1,117 crore. It promised to release the balance amount within four months citing that the Centre is yet to release the funds.

However, the Centre submitted an affidavit in the High Court stating that it released the funds as per the utilisation certificates submitted by the state government.

The Centre’s affidavit proved that the Jagan government had diverted MNREGA funds to other purposes to overcome the financial crisis it is facing due to the implementation of cash dole out schemes in the name of Navaratnalu.

The High Court viewed that non-payment of wages to workers amounts to a violation of the Constitution as well as the MNREGA Act.

Mansas Trust case: AP High Court rules in favour of Ashok Gajapathi Raju

0

The AP High Court on Wednesday (today) dismissed petitions filed by Andhra Pradesh government and Sanchaitha Gajapathi Raju challenging the orders passed by single judge reinstating TDP senior leader P Ashok Gajapathi Raju as chairman of Manas Trust.

The AP High Court upheld the orders passed by single judge and ruled that Ashok Gajapathi Raju will continue as chairman of Mansas Trust.

Sanchaitha also filed three separate petitions challenging the single judge order.

However, the division bench of AP High Court headed by Chief Justice Arup Kumar Goswami dismissed all these petitions.

It may be recalled that AP government had filed three appeal petitions in July arguing that the single judge erred in his judgment which was based on the will deed which has become void.

It may be also recalled that the government had removed Ashok as chairman of Mansas trust and Simhachalam temple trust on March 3, 2020, and appointed Sanchaitha Gajapathi Raju in his place by recognising her as the founder family member.

Ashok challenged his removal in the high court, arguing that he was removed arbitrarily without following due procedure. He also stated that his removal was against the trust deed which stipulates that only the eldest male lineal descendants can be appointed as chairman of the trust.

The government defended its move, arguing that Sanchaitha was eligible for the position and cannot be discriminated based on gender.

The high court, however, set aside the GO and reinstated Ashok as chairman of the two trusts. But AP government appealed against the order, arguing that the single judge made an error in his judgement while ruling in favour of Ashok based on the trust deed which has become void after the 1987 legislation which abolishes all hereditary trusties.

The government has also argued that Sanchaitha has preferential right of succession over Ashok according to Hindu Succession Act.

AP High Court raps 4 IAS officers, YSRCP Govt

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday (today) took YSRCP government as well as four senior IAS officers to task in a contempt case.

Four IAS officers, namely panchayat raj principal secretary Gopala Krishna Dwivedi, panchayat raj commissioner Girija Shankar, MAUD principal secretary Y Srilaxmi and IAS officer Vijay Kumar attended the court hearing in a contempt case.

The AP High Court expressed anger at YSRCP government and four IAS officers for constructing Grama/ Ward Secretariat buildings, Rythu Bhaorsa Centres, Panchayat office buildings in government school premises located in villages, towns and cities in Andhra Pradesh in violation of AP High Court orders.

It may be recalled that AP High Court ordered not to construct these buildings in government school premises six months ago. But the YSRCP government continues to construct these buildings. With this few individuals filed a contempt case against AP government.

The AP High Court took serious view of the issue and asked IAS officers how can the government pollute academic atmosphere in government schools by constructing such buildings.

The court said only students from poorer sections study in government schools and their studies will be disturbed if such offices exist in school premises.

The court said such offices will create political environment in goverment school premises which is not good for academic activities of children.

The court also questioned whether any of these four IAS officers studied in government schools saying that had they studied in government schools they would have known the difficulties being faced by students from poorer sections in these schools.

The court adjourned the case to August 31 for further hearing.
