Court Postpones Decision On AP NGOs
With a petitioner asking to restrict AP NGOs from protesting against the bifurcation decision take by Congress working committee, high court took the issue seriously and hearings on going at the moment. However a verdict regarding this petition against APNGOs is expected today, but Court postponed it totomorrow.
Telangana based lawyer Ravi Kumar from has filed a petition in high court stating that APNGO's strike is against the law. Also he mentioned that people are losing much due to this strike put up APNGOs. Today, hearings took place in High Court about the petition, and APNGOs stated that they have right to protest as the future of Seemandhra employees is at stake due to this bifurcation decision. The petitioner however accused that APGNOs are politically motivated and their protests have nothing to do with their jobs.
After hearing both the sides, Court questioned the petitioners to tell them what Court is supposed to do, and how government should react on the strike according to law. Also judges questioned who should take action in this situation, as government is not invoking ESMA on the agitating employees.
Anyway, AP NGOs once again stressed that they will continue with protests even if High Court orders them to stop their protests. Also they are contemplating to knock Supreme Court doors if HC doesn't give them a favourable decision.
