New Delhi :
The Supreme Court on Wednesday set aside the interim orders of the Andhra Pradesh High Court asking the state to investigate allegations of corruption and malpractices during the previous Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government to establish Amaravati as the state capital. The government’s decision was put on hold. The High Court, prima facie believing that he was politically motivated, had stayed the investigation.
A bench of Justice MR Shah and Justice MM Sundaresh said that prima facie we are of the opinion that some of the arguments given by the High Court while staying the proceedings due to two mandates are not appropriate. In particular, the High Court’s view that the new government cannot be allowed to completely reverse the decisions of the previous government.
