The Telangana High Court expressed its disappointment on Monday with Telangana’s Advocate General (AG) BS Prasad’s failure to appear before the Court to defend a matter regarding the failure of the State and Central Government to provide flood assistance to Telangana farmers.

Justice Ramachandra Rao lost his temper when Special Government Pleader (GP) Radhiv Reddy informed the Court that the AG was not briefed on the contents of the case.

Justice Rao asked, “What sort of silly excuses are you submitting? Is this file so complicated that it can not be explained to an AG?

The Bench then ordered the AG to appear before the Court for the next hearing.

Vissa Kiran Kumar and two others from Hyderabad had reached the Court to seek an order against the Government to initiate a field-level enumeration of crop and livestock losses sustained by farmers during the 2020 floods.

The Court stated,The Centre and State Governments are ignoring the release of funds for farm flood relief and the Court sought to know the reason for the delay in filing counters on the same.”

The matter will be heard next on September 8.
