    The Telangana High Court recently heard a petition filed by former CM K Chandrashekar Rao. He was seeking a stay on a government order that set up a commission to investigate power procurement and construction of power plants in the state. The petition was being scrutinized because there were objections about the commission’s head, Justice L Narasimha Reddy, being included in a personal capacity in the petition.

    KCR’s counsel argued that the commission chairman had already made biased statements about the government’s actions without giving KCR a chance to present his side. They also pointed out that the Power Purchase Agreements between Telangana and Chhattisgarh had been approved by the Electricity Regulatory Commissions of both states. Despite this, the commission chairman had made prejudiced comments to the media before giving KCR a fair opportunity to respond.

    The counsel requested that the commission’s final report should not be submitted without the court’s consent to prevent further damage to KCR’s reputation. They argued that the chairman had already reached a conclusion before allowing KCR to present his case, which was unfair. The hearing on this matter was adjourned to a later date for further arguments.

    In a separate case, two MLAs from the BRS party filed a petition seeking the disqualification of three MLAs who had defected to the Congress party without resigning from BRS. The petitioners cited previous judgments where Speakers were directed to decide on disqualification cases promptly. The judge adjourned this case to a later date due to time constraints.
