HYDERABAD: Acting Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale of the Hyderabad High Court on Friday reportedly told the Telangana advocates that any final decision on the provisional allocation list of subordinate judicial officers between AP and Telangana states will be taken only after having a dialogue with the stakeholders involved in the issue.
In the backdrop of boycott call to High Court on June 13, the members of Telangana High Court Advocates’ Association led by its president Gandra Mohan Rao met the Acting CJ in his chambers at the High Court on Friday morning.
It is learnt that during the course of interaction some of the THCAA representatives made a proposal before the ACJ that if the High Court keeps the provisional allocation list in abeyance then the association will withdraw its boycott call of the High Court on Monday. Reacting to the proposal, Justice Bhosale made it clear that the final decision will be taken after due deliberations with the stakeholders concerned, sources said.
Meanwhile, the Telangana advocates have intensified their ongoing protests which entered the sixth day on Friday demanding bifurcation of the existing High Court and recall of provisional allocation of judicial officers between AP and Telangana states. The THCAA requested all the Telangana advocates to make the proposed ‘Chalo High Court’ programme on Monday a grand success.
Tense moments prevailed at the City Civil Courts when some of the agitating advocates tried to lock the main gate of the court on Friday morning and tried to prevent the judges and magistrates from entering the court premises. The police personnel who were present in large numbers at the city civil courts immediately intervened and removed the advocates squatted at the entrance of the court complex and allowed the vehicles of the judges.
The Telangana lawyers at Nampally Criminal courts complex registered their protest by organising “Dhoom Dham” on the court premises. The T advocates practicing at the High Court also staged lunch-hour demonstration in support of their demands.
