AP High Court notice to TRS and TJAC on T-agitation
A division bench of the Andhra Pradesh High Court, comprising Chief Justice Nisar Ahmad Kakru and Justice Vilas V. Afzulpurkar, issued notices to the Telangana Rastra Samiti chief, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, Telangana Joint Action of Committee (political) convener, Kodandaram, Telangana NGOs Association, state government and the Centre on a plea seeking a direction to prevent the indefinite general strike by all employees of Telangana region.
The petition filed by P. Venkata Narayana, an advocate from Visakhapatnam, seeking a direction to declare the on going agitation by Telangana employees as illegal. The petition contended that the government employees could not go on a strike on an issue not related to their service and therefore the strike was illegal.
The HC bench directed the respondents to file their counter affidavits on the plea within a week.
