In a rude shock to the Jagan government which has been striding against the Amaravati farmers, Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to hear the petition filed by the Andhra Pradesh government against High Court’s interim orders.
After hearing the argument, a three-judge bench comprising Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice MR Shah reportedly stated that the apex court couldn’t interfere as there was a pending trial in the High Court. With the apex court squashing the AP government’s plea, all eyes are now on August 27th High Court hearing.
It can be noted that Andhra Pradesh High Court, in a most anticipated move has extended the status quo imposed on the decentralisation of development and CRDA repeal bills. It was for the second time HC extended the status quo on Amaravati after a batch of petitions filed by Rajadhani Rythu Parirakshana Samithi, seeking a stay on the implementation of the gazette notification issued by Jagan-led state government.
