The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to the Centre and others on a PIL by former Andhra Pardesh chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy against the creation of a separate Telangana state.
On Thursday, Reddy moved the Supreme Court, seeking a direction to declare the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act for creation of Telangana as “unconstitutional for being violative of the basic structure of the Constitution of India”.
In a petition filed jointly by him and two other former ministers of his Cabinet, Reddy contended that the impugned enactment violated the basic feature of federalism.
“The President without applying mind, simply acted on the aid and advise of the Council of Ministers headed by the PM in introducing the Bill in Parliament after the state legislature returned the resolution dated January 30,” stated his petition, drawn by advocate A D N Rao.
