HYDERABAD: Senior counsels of the Hyderabad High Court are of the view that the petitions against AP Reorganisation Bill as well as the Act have come up for hearing before the Supreme Court in a ‘routine manner’ and that there is no significance in taking up the matter after a long gap of nearly two years.

Senior advocate A Satya Prasad on Monday said the new CJ Khehar might have reviewed the important cases, which are pending before the court, and as part of it the above petitions might have come up for hearing on Monday. “The pending cases will come up for hearing in a routine manner and there is no other significance in it”, he observed. Another senior counsel S Satyam Reddy also said the pending cases will be taken up in a routine manner. The petitioners have challenged the procedural aspect with regard to the state bifurcation, he added.

Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court decided to hear all the petitions filed against the Andhra Pradesh State Reorganization Bill as a batch.
The Apex Bench headed by Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar while dealing with petitions filed separately by former chief minister of united AP state N Kiran Kumar Reddy and several others, directed the Centre to file counter affidavit in the matter and adjourned the case.
The petitioners had contended that the bifurcation of united AP state was not done scientifically and that the procedure adopted in the Parliament was not proper.
