Lawyers of the Andhra Pradesh High Court got into a scuffle on Friday over the Centre’s decision to initiate the process for formation of separate Telangana.
The lawyers of Telangana and other regions -- Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra -- entered into an altercation over the division of the state.
While Telangana advocates favoured separate statehood, those from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions insisted on a integrated state.
Slogans like ‘Jai Telangana´ and ‘Jai Andhra´ rant the air as the scuffle began.
Later, the lawyers assembled in front of the Chief Justice A R Dave’s chamber and raised slogans.
