Praveen Kumar takes oath as HC acting CJ

It is my duty to strive for welfare of all sections, he says

A new chapter had begun in the history of sunrise State Andhra Pradesh with the inauguration of the temporary campus for the High Court at the CM’s camp office here on Tuesday. Justice Chagari Praveen Kumar, senior-most Judge of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh, took charge as acting Chief Justice. The court had been established consequent to the bifurcation of the High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad. Supreme Court Judge N.V. Ramana inaugurated the High Court in the presence of Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and others. Justice Ramana said the High Court had been established after a long time in Vijayawada. The problems of the petitioners would come down with the move. More than the establishment of the High Court, it was necessary to protect the values of it. Mr. Naidu said the bifurcation was almost complete with the division of the High Court in physical sense. Except division of the funds and assets, the entire Capital had been shifted to AP. Justice Praveen Kumar said the State had witnessed a historical event with the inauguration and a new history had begun in the State. “It is my duty to strive for welfare of all sections of society. I shall work under guidance of Supreme Court judges.”
