HYDERABAD:Making it clear that he is not against bifurcation of High Court, chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday said his government was not opposed to the bifurcation of Hyderabad High Court, which is now acting as a common high court for both AP and Telangana.
Naidu, who was in Delhi in connection with the conference of the Chief Ministers of the States and Chief Justices of the High Courts held at the national capital on Sunday, said grave injustice was done to AP during bifurcation.
“Hence, we are requesting the Centre to undo the injustice done to AP. If the Centre decides to set up a separate HC, we won’t object to such decision. But, in order to set up the HC, required infrastructure is to be set up first,” Naidu said while interacting with newsmen in Delhi.
Earlier, Naidu called on Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and requested him to give more funds for the development of the backward regions in the State and also for the construction of the new capital city.
During the meeting with Jaitley, Naidu also discussed financial issues relating to the state including the Polavaram irrigation project.
Modi to be Invited
Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu said he would be inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new capital city of the State, which might be held in June.
