SC refuses to entertain plea on Telangana issue
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a PIL challenging union cabinet’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh to carve out a separate Telangana state. A bench of justices HL Dattu and Madan B Lokur said the petition filed against bifurcation of the state is pre-mature as Parliament and state legislature are still to pass it. ‘We don’t know the mind of state legislature or Parliament and what they will do. Its pre-mature,’ the bench said. It, however, said that all legal issues raised in the petition are kept open to be argued at an appropriate stage.
