HYDERABAD: Like it had moved the Supreme Court on the issue of holding EAMCET counselling, the Andhra Pradesh government is understood to be contemplating challenging the other recent decisions of the Telangana government on issues concerning both the states in the apex court.
According to sources, chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has asked the officials concerned to examine the option of taking legal recourse on Telangana government’s recent decisions which it feels violated provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act-2014.
In the wake of the recent move of the TS government to bifurcate and rename the Acharya NG Ranga Agricultural University and Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University, Naidu is said to be of the strong view that there is an immediate need to approach the Supreme Court for the protection of the interests of AP.
When asked about the possibility of the AP government approaching the apex court challenging the decisions of the TS government on issues that affect Seemandhra people, AP deputy chief minister KE Krishna Murthy replied, “We are actively considering this option. After taking a final decision, we will let you know.”
