Andhra Pradesh government which is already in neck-deep troubles with raising coronavirus positive cases has got a pile of a setback on Friday. In a roll of slashes from Andhra Pradesh High Court which started off with YSRCP colours on public buildings, Jagan and his team faced a number of legal setback despite all its coverup trails.
In a recent revelation, Jagan-led government on Friday faced three straight setbacks adding up to the previous 64 times the High Court expressed its discontentment. Asking the state government over why the G.Os are issued even after High Court raised concerns over YSRCP party ocular on panchayat offices, the bench dismissed G.O 623. The court also instructed the CS and concerned Panchayat Raj officials to offer an explanation.
On the same day, the Andhra Pradesh High Court has set aside the suspension of senior IPS officer and former intelligence chief AB Venkateswara Rao and directed the state government to reinstate him to the regular service. The court also directed the government to pay his salary for the period of his suspension setting aside the directions given by the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT).
Adding to the above two verdicts, Andhra Pradesh High Court ordered a CBI probe into the case of Dr Sudhakar, an anaesthetist who was earlier suspended for alleging that government doctors were not provided safety gear. Instructing CBI to probe and file the investigation report within eight weeks, the HC also ordered the government to book cases against Visakhapatnam police officers who allegedly manhandled the doctor while taking him into custody.
