The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Tuesday made it clear that it would not interfere in the proposed ‘Million March' planned in the city by the Telangana Joint Action Committee and others on March 10.

A Division Bench of the High Court stated that it is duty of government and state police to act on marches, rallies and bandhs while dealing with a writ petition filed by one Sambaraju Chakrapani of Warangal.

The Bench, comprising of Chief Justice Nissar Ahmad Kakru and Justice Vilas Afzulpurkar, stated that it would not issue any directions to anybody in this connection.

However, the Court made it clear that all persons are duty-bound to obey the laws framed for maintaining law and order.

The Bench asked the petitioner to file a petition if anybody violates the law and causes disturbance to any other persons. 

In his petition, Mr Chakrapani had stated that the future of students was at stake and the government had to take steps to protect them in the light of ‘Million March' by the Telangana Joint Action Committee on March 10.
