HYDERABAD: Telangana High Court Advocates' Association and Telangana Advocates' Joint Action Committee on Tuesday warned of intensifying its agitation and not to allow Andhra judicial officers to function in Telangana state if the latter fail to withdraw their options to Telangana. In this regard, it has addressed letters to 118 Andhra judicial officers who were provisionally allotted to Telangana judicial service.
On May 3 this year, the High Court registry finalised the list of provisional allocation of judicial officers between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.
Association president Gandra Mohan Rao and JAC convener M Rajender Reddy, in their letters to Andhra judicial officers who were provisionally allotted to Telangana, urged the latter to reconsider their decision and request the high court to allot them to AP state to avoid future legal tangles and unrest in judicial fraternity in Telangana state.
Following a call given by the advocates' association and JAC and the presidents of districts and subordinate courts of the state, majority of the courts in Telangana were boycotted on Tuesday in protest against the provisional allocation list of subordinate judicial officers between two states. The protestors who burnt the provisional list copies demanded for a fresh list of subordinate judicial officers allocating between AP and Telangana based on the native districts.
