Hyderabad: What does a veteran politician with 40 years of experience do when confronted by a 40-year-old opponent who has dethroned him? Use every trick in the book to undermine the opponent who in this case is Andra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Mr Naidu and his TD have taken legal recourse by filing more than 10 petitions against Mr Reddy’s decisions taken as the Chief Minister.


These include introduction of English medium schools, three capitals proposal, local bodies and other issues, the latest being the petitions against the decision to give land acquired for the capital city to the poor as house-sites.

Several important decisions are thus stuck in the courts.

As things stand, the Telugu Desam is filing   petitions against every decision taken by the YSRC government. In some cases, the High Court has reserved judgments, while in some hearing is underway. In the past, no political party has filed petitions against decisions taken by the government, whereas the Telugu Desam is trying to obstruct every decision of the incumbent government. This has become a big headache to the Chief Minister.

Renegotiations on Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), shifting of High Court from Amaravati to Kurnool are also issues pending in the High Court. The Telugu Desam leadership has reportedly directed its cadre to file petitions in district courts.

Some of the cases filed in High Court on Chief Minister’s decisions Renegotiation on power purchase agreements.

Village secretariats in YSRC party colours, English medium in government schools, Local body elections, Three capitals to decentralise administration, Shifting of High Court and judicial institutions to Kurnool, Gullapalli Nageswara Rao committee report on decentralisation, Boston Committee report on decentralisation, Distribution of  Amaravati lands to the poor as housesites.
