Lawyers of the Andhra Pradesh High Court were involved in a scuffle today 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 to the region, 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 AR Dave's chamber and raised slogans.
