HC reserves order on Viveka murder case

0

The hearings concluded before the AP High Court on the YS Vivekananda Reddy murder case. The court reserved the final order. The police submitted the general case diary before the court as per the earlier instructions.

Meanwhile, Viveka daughter Sunitha Reddy’s advocate still argued in favour of the CBI investigation into the case. Sunitha advocate also objected to the petition of CM Jaganmohan Reddy withdrawing his earlier petition for the CBI enquiry into the murder. Prior to the election, Jagan Reddy filed a petition seeking CBI inquiry into the murder but now he is withdrawing that petition.

The court hearings have also become sensational just like the mysterious murder of Vivekananda Reddy. There is lot of curiosity on whether or not the court considers Viveka daughter’s strong request for CBI inquiry into the murder. The final order is expected soon.

AP High Court keeps judgement on hold on relocation of govt offices to Kurnool

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Tuesday kept its judgement on hold on the issue of relocation of few government offices to Kurnool by the YSRCP government after paying heed to the contention of both parties to the litigation.

The farmers of the Amaravathi capital development region filed a writ in the AP High Court on the GO issued by the YSRCP government to relocate the offices of Commissioner of Inquiries and Vigilance Commissioner to Kurnool and obtained a stay order earlier.

The state government submitted to the court that that it relocated the two offices to Kurnool as the space is not sufficient in secretariat at Amaravati.

The court asked the government why it is relocating the two offices to Kurnool instead of shifting them to another building in Amaravati. The three-member Bench asked the government to submit an affidavit.

As per court directions, the government submitted an affidavit to court on Tuesday.

The affidavit attributed the relocation to inadequate space in secretariat. The affidavit also highlighted a proposal to relocate some of the offices not connected to secretariat.

There are plans to relocate at least 10 government offices, including the offices of Commissioner of Inquiries and Vigilance Commissioner, to Kurnool as District Collector of Kurnool submitted a report to government indicating availability of suitable buildings there and hence the relocation.

0

DGP Gowtham Sawang appeared before the AP High Court in connection with a habeas corpus petition filed by two persons. The judges expressed their dissatisfaction over the police searching the house of a lawyer without giving prior notice. The petitioners complained that they were illegally arrested by the police.

After hearing both the parties, the court told the DGP to give proper training to the police staff to avoid making mistakes like taking illegal custody of people. The judge asked what would be the relevance of the courts if the police don’t follow the basic rules of law.

AP Circar ignores HC order once more: Capital shifting

0

It has become a regular practice for the YCP Government to violate the courts’ orders despite the courts giving serious warnings again and again. Now, the government ignored one more order of the AP High Court imposing ban on the shifting of government offices out of Amaravati Capital City area. In a midnight order, Jagan Circar instructed the offices of the AP Vigilance Commission and the AP State Commissionerate of Enquiries to move to Kurnool towards administrative convenience. Rumour is since these are quasi-judicial departments, they are being shifted to the proposed Judicial Capital at Kurnool.

The HC had already clearly ordered that the respective officials would have to bear the expences if they shift the government offices in violation of the court orders. These orders were given in response to the petitions filed by Amaravati farmers who gave huge lands for Capital construction. This shifting crisis is causing pain to the officials who are caught in the crossfire between adamant Jagan and the angry courts.
The government took care not to mention Judicial Capital in its orders as it would immediately attract contempt of court. Still, critics believe the HC will take a serious view of this.

Remove YSRCP colours on panchayat office buildings: AP High Court

0

The AP High Court on Monday took strong exception to YSRCP government’s decision to paint gram panchayat office buildings in YSRCP party colours.

The Court directed the state government to remove YSRCP colours on panchayat office buildings as they belong to the state government and not YSRCP.

A petition was filed in the High Court challenging the decision of YSRCP government to paint gram panchayat buildings in YSRCP colours.

The High Court made it clear that government buildings are public property and no political party or government has the power to paint them in party colours.

The High Court said since the elections for gram panchayats in Andhra Pradesh are scheduled to be held soon, the YSRCP colours on panchayat office buildings should be removed immediately.

The court directed AP Election Commission to take steps in this regard immediately and ensure that the party colours are removed.

0

AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy receives shock after shock over the issue of shifting executive capital from Amaravati to Vizag.

After AP Legislative Assembly successfully blocked the capital shifting bill on Wednesday, thanks to TDP, the AP High Court delivered yet another shock to Jagan on Thursday.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday ordered the State government not to relocate the offices of various head of departments from Amaravati.

Chief Justice JK Maheswari, after hearing the arguments in the Capital cases, initially said that there was no need for look into the Bills that were tabled in the Assembly and the Council.

However, when counsel of the petitioners Ashok Bhan said if there were no court orders, the offices of all heads of departments would be shifted, Chief Justice Maheswari directed the government to maintain status quo until the cases were disposed. If the government shifted the offices, it would have to take responsibility for the act, he warned.

Chief Justice Maheswari adjourned the case to February 26.

Counsel for the petitioners said the High Court had taken the people’s concerns into consideration.

Speaking to the media after the hearing, Ashok Bhan said that he had told the court that the High Power Committee report was hidden from the people and urged it to order the government to make it public.

He said that the Chief Justice directed the Advocate General to take steps to circulate the HPC report to all stakeholders.

High Court orders Jagan Circar to pay Rs 1,400 cr: PPAs

0

The AP High Court expressed its disbelief and shock over the continuing indifference of Jagan Reddy Regime to its orders in various cases. The court ordered the government to pay a compensation of Rs. 1,400 Cr to three solar and wind power companies towards damages. This is relating to the violation of PPA agreements by the YCP government. The court asked the government pleader why Jagan Reddy Regime is treating its orders with contempt.

The YCP government has also ignored the orders of the Modi government at the Centre to honour the Power Purchase Agreements. But Jagan Reddy continued defying the Centre. This has led to Modi-Shah taking a hard view. They stopped giving him official appointments to Jagan to meet them in Delhi. Recently, AP CM waited for hours and hours to meet Amit Shah in National Capital but Shah didn’t care about Jagan. There are rumours that Union Home Minister is not giving appointments to Jagan as he is not able to give proper reasons to meet him. Jagan’s Rs. 43,000 Cr CBI illegal assets cases are alleged to be the reason for Shah to keep CM at a distance. All these factors caused Jagan to further embarrass Modi by harassing power companies.

AP Capital Experts Committee has no legality?

0

In its over-confidence, the YCP government has not followed due constitutional procedures while setting up the GN Rao Experts Committee. As a result, CM Jagan Reddy may face serious hurdles in the shifting of AP Capital from Amaravati to Visakhapatnam. The terms of reference given to Experts Committee are just taking public opinion on how to develop Capital City and all 13 districts. Going by this, the Committee has no power to suggest Capital shifting. Moreover, the Committee is not formally formed under the Enquiries Act. Then how can CM refer to such an unconstitutional committee’s report to change Capital altogether? This is being raised before the court. Already, the Amaravati farmers have filed a petition in the High Court.

TDP is getting increasingly confident of hitting back Jagan Reddy in all his careless but cruel decisions. TDP MP K Ravindra Kumar says that they have gathered all the required documents to prove how AP CM is violating all established democratic norms in Capital shifting. He says that Jagan Reddy’s statement in the Assembly is the most irresponsible and anti-constitutional. The court will definitely take serious note of CM’s statement which is sure to influence the Experts’ Committee report. It is unfortunate that the ruling YCP Ministers are complicating the issue rather than solving it.

AP High Court admits plea against Jagan’s three capitals proposal

0

A petition seeking withdrawal of the decision to set up three Capitals was filed by farmers in the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday. The petition prayed for continuation of the Capital construction at Amaravati.

Admitting the petition, the High Court adjourned hearing in the case for four weeks. The High Court issued notices to the government and the CRDA asking them to file counters,according to sources.

In their petition, the farmers strongly opposed Jagan’s move to set up three capitals for AP saying that it’s detrimental to the interests of AP.

Farmers urged the court to direct Jagan to continue Amaravati as the only capital.

They said thousands of farmers had given their valuable fertile lands for construction of Amaravati capital city keeping in view the interests and future of AP and AP people. They alleged that Jagan was deliberately diluting Amaravati capital city for political reasons by creating two more capitals.

They said Amaravati will lose its relevance as AP capital if Secretariat and High Court are moved out of Amaravati to Vizag and Kurnool.

High Court stay on Jagan sand order against L&T

0

The corporate companies like L&T have begun confronting the Jaganmohan Reddy government’s arbitrary decisions head-on. As part of this, the L&T filed a petition in the High Court against the AP government taking away sand from its private stock yard. The court heard the two sides and issued a stay on the government’s anti-stocking orders for four weeks. The L&T strongly argued that the 82,000 metric tonnes at its private yard is meant for its ongoing projects and this cannot be diverted under any circumstances.

Interestingly, the Jagan Circar went ahead with forcible diversion of sand from L&T yard at Amaravati in the name of its earlier anti-stocking orders. The government argues that sand is required to meet the local needs to solve the ongoing crisis arising out of sand shortage.

Pressure is building heavily on Jagan Regime following critical statements by TDP leaders and Jana Senani Pawan Kalyan. The suicides of construction workers due to lack of work have also shaken up the YCP government. Analysts say that Jagan’s thoughtless sand policy has already done huge damage. For the first time in history, construction workers are committing suicides just like debt-ridden farmers and weavers. CM also seems to have no transparent plan to overcome this huge crisis.

HC reverse treatment to Jagan reverse orders

0

Even the AP High Court is expressing its shock over the reverse manner in which Jagan Reverse Regime is ignoring the orders of the courts. Clearly angry in this regard, the HC has started giving shock treatment to the reverse GOs being issued by Jagan. The court has dismissed the latest GO 63 issued by CM Jagan for reviewing the Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) of solar and wind power companies once again. This is the second time Jagan Circar is embarrassing the power generating companies which have no option but to approach court again and again.

This time, the High Court took serious objection to the silly manner in which Jagan Regime is treating the court orders. It commented that Jagan’s acts amount to contempt of court. The HC also dismissed the committee set up by Jagan to talk to solar companies to review PPAs. It set a deadline for the Jagan Regime to solve disputes and clear the dues to power companies. The HC also ordered the YCP government to approach the AP Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) for settling disputes with regard to the previous agreements.

High Court order on Chandrababu security

0

The AP High Court ordered the State government to provide comprehensive security with 97 force for Ex Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. Justice Durga Prasada Rao gave the order after hearing arguments from both sides on the petition filed by Chandrababu seeking restoration of full security to him. The court also ordered that a jammer be provided in the Opposition leader’s convoy for enhanced security.

The court gave three months time to the National Security Guards (NSG) and the State police to come to an understanding on the issue as to who should provide Close Security Team services. As part of the CST, 5 plus 2 security should be provided to Naidu. The government should continue one Chief Security Officer.

The Jagan Reddy government reduced security cover for Naidu on the plea that there is no need for the same. But the TDP President argued that he required continuation of higher security in view of the threat perception. Naidu has served as Chief Minister of United Andhra Pradesh as well. He was also on the hit list of Maoists once. As the residual Andhra Pradesh’s first Chief Minister, Naidu has served five years and taken many crucial decisions like selection of new Capital City, etc.

High Court shock to Jagan Circar on PPAs

0

The Andhra Pradesh High Court has issued stay orders on the proposed review of the Power Purchase Agreements by the Jaganmohan Reddy government. The Court ordered the AP Government to file its counter to the arguments placed by the companies. About 24 wind and solar power companies filed the petition in the Court seeking orders to stop the Jaganmohan Reddy government from reviewing tariff and cancelling the PPAs which are made for a period of 25 years. The companies argued that the high-level committee set up by the AP government to review the PPAs is unconstitutional and against the spirit of the agreements already reached.

The power companies contended that the PPAs were approved by the Electricity Regulatory Commission. So, the AP Energy Department and the APSPDCL have no powers to cancel these PPAs. But these top officials are writing letters threatening to cancel the agreements if the prices are not reviewed. The Jagan Reddy government is facing an uphill task as the power companies backed by the Centre are going ahead for a head-on collision with the YCP government.
