The state government challenged the three capitals in the Supreme Court
Amaravati: The state government has challenged the orders given by the Andhra Pradesh High Court on the three capitals in the Supreme Court. It has sought to suspend the judgment given by the High Court regarding Amaravati as the capital. The government has said that the High Court’s ruling that the Assembly has no power to make any laws on the capital is to weaken the legislative system. The High Court appealed for an immediate stay on the verdict. The petition stated that the High Court’s suggestion that the state government should act according to the CRDA Act is questioning the powers of the legislature. It also told the Supreme Court that it is not possible to implement the High Court’s verdict that Amaravati should be developed within six months as per the CRDA agreement. The opposition parties are severely criticizing the government’s approach to the Supreme Court. They are angry that the state government is bringing the issue of three capitals to the fore as part of political moves.
