The Andhra Pradesh High Court today (Monday) heard the case of withdrawal of three capitals bill.Advocates Shyam Diwan and Suresh appeared for the petitioners before the three-judge bench.
However, the governor has not yet given gazette notification on the withdrawal of three capitals bill and CRDA repeal bills.So, the AP High Court has decided to continue hearing on capital petitions after getting approval from the governor.
In this context, the next hearing was adjourned to December 27.
Prosecutors brought to the court’s attention that the Andhra Pradesh state government had said it would bring in three capitals bill again even after withdrawing the bills in today’s hearing.Amaravati is the only capital for AP, and there is a master plan behind the repeal of the three capitals bill, said the lawyers for the petitioner.The lawyers, therefore, asked the court to continue the hearing on these petitions.
The Andhra Pradesh high court, however, clarified that it was removing the interim orders that impeded development under the law.Also, it ordered the status quo on the relocation of government departments in Andhra Pradesh.With this, the trial was adjourned to December 27..
