In case of legal aid to ministers the AP High Court denied from entertaining and adjudicating a writ petition filed challenging the State government’s order to provide financial assistance to Ministers who have been served notices by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme court had ordered notice to six ministers seeking explanation why the petition filed, seeking a direction to initiate action against them for their alleged role in issuing the controversial Government Orders connected to illegal assets case pertaining to Kadapa Member of Parliament Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, should not be entertained.
The Andhra government issued funds to the legal battle of these ministers which was challenged through a writ petition filed by O.M. Debara.
A division bench of the High Court comprising Acting Chief Justice P.C. Ghose and Justice Vilas Afzalpurkar took note of the fact that the matter was pending in the Supreme Court and said this was not the appropriate stage to review the Andhra government’s decision.
