AP Judiciary Is Not Impartial, Says Sai Reddy

AP Judiciary Is Not Impartial, Says Sai Reddy

YSRCP general secretary and parliamentary party leader V Vijay Sai Reddy on Thursday regretted that Andhra Pradesh had been facing not only financial troubles but also judicial troubles.

Reddy raised in Rajya Sabha the issue of the Andhra Pradesh high court issuing an order allegedly gagging the media from reporting on an FIR lodged against a former AG along with 12 others.

He questioned the legitimacy of the order on the floor of the house. The same order also went onto enforce a stay on the investigation being carried out by the ACB and the same was also questioned by the MP. 

During a discussion on Covid, Sai Reddy said: “The court has taken some quite unusual and legally questionable decisions. The state is suffering not only financially but also judicially. A quite unusual and legally questionable decision has been taken in the interim order of the AP HC, imposing a ban on media and social media from mentioning anything related to a FIR filed by the police against the former Advocate General of the police and others.”

Stating that it was an unusual order from the court, the MP said there appeared to be no material to justify such censorship other than the allegation by the petitioner that it has foisted the case. It also accompanies an order saying that there would be a stay on the case itself. 

“This is political vendetta being practiced by someone who has served during the previous regime. The Judiciary is not impartial. Judiciary is biased against the Government of Andhra Pradesh,” he alleged.

Similar issue was raised by YSRCP floor leader in Lok Sabha P Mithun Reddy on Wednesday.

“Law should be equally implemented for every citizen, be it the PM or a common man,” he said.
