The bench of Chief Justice Kalyan Jyothi Sengupta and Justice KC Bhanu differed on the petition filed against the strike of APNGOs that it was not legal.
While the Chief Justice came to the conclusion that the petition can be considered for hearing on it, Justice KC Bhanu expressed a different opinion that the move is politically motivated.
Because of the difference in the bench on the petition, the petition is transferred to other bench.
APNGOs were on strike for a total period of 66 days opposing the decision of the Center to bifurcate the State. The petition against it was filed after 18 days’ strike. The petitioner previously participated in Telangana Strike.
