Justice B Chandra Kumar of the AP High court on Wednesday granted six weeks time to the principal secretary of BC welfare to implement an order of the court with regard to regularisation of two employees with the AP Study Centre of the department.
The judge was dealing with a contempt petition filed by A Satyanarayana and another complaining of violation of orders made by the court in February.
According to the petitioner, the court had directed the authorities concerned to regularise services of the petitioners in accordance with the principles laid down by the apex court.
When the additional advocate general pointed out that the original appointment was not in accordance with the rules, the judge faulted the defence of the state authorities.
He pointed out that the conditions prescribed could only have been violated by the authorities and thus it suits the government to take such a plea having violated the law itself.
The principal secretary concerned was given six weeks time to implement the order and report compliance to the court.
