HYDERABAD: Governor ESL Narasimhan on Monday urged the agitating Telangana advocates to withdraw their strike unconditionally in the interest of the state, particularly the judiciary sector.
Representatives of the Telangana Advocates’ Joint Action Committee, Telangana High Court Advocates’ Association and Federation of State Bar Associations, and Judicial Officers & Judicial Employees Associations met the governor at Raj Bhavan here and submitted their representations seeking the latter’s intervention in resolving their demands.
They sought immediate recall of the provisional list of judicial officers allotted to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, revocation of suspensions of the judges and bifurcation of the common high court.
The High Court rejected the applications of certain judicial officers working in the units of various districts for grant of leave. Besides, the court cancelled the orders issued by it earlier permitting V Vara Prasad, XIV Additional District Judge, RR district, now under suspension, to go to USA. The court, while keeping him under suspension, directed that he shall not leave the headquarters without obtaining prior permission. In this regard, the registrar (vigilance) issued orders later in the evening. The High Court, in a circular, made it clear that all the judicial officers working in AP and TS Telangana are directed not to leave the headquarters of their place of work without prior anction from the high court.
