TG Govt Files Fresh Petition Against Governor In SC

The ongoing political discord between the Telangana government and the state’s governor, Tamilisai, has taken a public turn, with the government filing a writ petition against her in the Supreme Court. The petition claims that the governor has not approved ten bills presented by the government, which the government argues are crucial administrative bills.

This follows a similar delay by the governor in approving the Telangana state budget. The government’s move is a significant step against the governor, and the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the case on March 3rd.

The Government has filed a petition in the Supreme Court under Article 32 of the Constitution of India, stating that it has been forced to take this step due to a “frequent constitutional impasse” created by the Governor’s refusal to act on several Bills passed by the Legislature since September 14, 2022.

The Government has submitted copies of Bills, including the Azamabad Industrial Area (Termination and Regulation of Leases) (Amendment) Bill, 2022, Telangana Municipal Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2022, Telangana Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Bill, 2022, and University of Forestry Telangana Bill, 2022, Telangana Universities Common Recruitment Board Bill, 2022, Telangana Motor Vehicles Taxation (Amendment) Bill, 2022, Telangana State Private Universities (Establishment and Regulation) (Amendment) Bill, 2022, Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University (Amendment) Bill, 2023, Telangana Panchayat Raj (Amendment) Bill, 2023, and Telangana Municipalities (Amendment) Bill, 2023.

The situation is gaining attention in Telangana political circles, particularly as tensions grow between the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi party and the Bharatiya Janata Party.
