The Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the central government’s notification on creation of Telangana after bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. A bench led by Justice H L Dattu said that no interim order can be passed in a matter like this and the parties will have to wait for final hearing.
The court said that it will take into account all alleged violations of Constitutional provisions while hearing the matter in August and will not dither from issuing any orders if the notification was found illegal.
The bench was hearing a bunch of petitions that have challenged the government’s January notification, proposing creation of Telangana. The petitions have claimed that no such notification could have been issued since the Andhra assembly had unanimously rejected the proposed bill for bifurcation the state.
Police used water cannons on the protesters when they tried to break the security cordon to reach the CBI office.
