TRS MP K Kavitha, however, said the Telangana government did not want things to ‘escalate to that level’ and appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the issue. 

“Our Chief Minister is very disheartened by the insensitivity of the Central government. We propose to go ahead and express our protest in Delhi. But, we do not want things to escalate to that level. We once again sincerely appeal to Prime Minister to intervene at this juncture and bifurcate the High Court,” Kavitha told reporters here.

It would not be good if the Chief Minister holds a dharna in Delhi as it will become an international news, she said, urging the Centre to act to prevent such a protest from happening.

TRS MPs raised the issue in Parliament and Rao appealed to Modi ‘10 times’ for bifurcation of the High Court, she said. 

Kavitha claimed that the Centre was not bifurcating the High Court due to political pressure from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. 

We have no role in creating HC, says Centre 

The Centre on Tuesday said it has no role in creation of a new High Court for Telangana and cautioned the state government that blaming the Narendra Modi government on the issue was ‘unacceptable and intolerable’. 

“It’s not in our hands. Creation of new High Court for Telangana is in the hands of Chief Minister and Chief Justice of that High Court (which is common for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and has not been bifurcated after the erstwhile state’s division in June 2014),” Law Minister DV Sadandanda Gowda told PTI.
