The relocation of AP High Court which has been a hornets’ nest in the state political circles is back with a crucial statement made by a Union Minister on Thursday’s Parliament session.
Into details, BJP MP GVL Narasimha Rao raised the relocation issue asking the central government to announce its stand as the cost management responsibilities will be vested in state government.
Responding to the question, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad stated that it is High Court that should come to a consensus with the state government on the relocation and that there is also no time frame as such. He then assured that he will hold talks with both the authorities over the same.
To recall, AP state assembly last year has approved bills that mentioned three capitals-an executive capital at Vizag, a legislative capital at Amaravati and a judicial capital at Kurnool which turned a tonoado in state politics with opposition from TDP, BJP & Amaravati farmers.
