YSRCP welcomes HC ruling

Hyderabad, Aug 8: Welcoming the High Court’s decision to admit the PIL 
challenging the Chandrababu Naidu government decision to withdraw 
prosecution of TDP leaders who were slapped with cases of serious nature, 
YSR Congress has said that it is a major setback to the State Government.
The High Court has accepted a PIL challenging the decision of the State 
Government to withdraw cases against TDP Ministers, MLAs and leaders and 
some of the offences are of serious nature, Party MLA Alla Ramakrishna 
Reddy told reporters here on Tuesday.
The State government has issued GOs withdrawing cases filed under 
Sections 302, 307 and other serious sections charging them with attempt to 
murder, harassment of women, arson and the like.
State Ministers, MLAs, Speaker and other leaders including the Deputy Chief 
Minister are involved in the cases and they were all blown off through a GO.
The Government has no discretionary power to withdraw criminal cases and 
it becomes more cumbersome if the person holds an office in the 
The Court has given one week time to give an explanation and the State has 
no proper cover to lift cases of TDP leaders, he said.
