Terming as “unconstitutional” and “undemocratic” the government’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh, Congress MP from Seemandhra L. Rajagopal on Friday said he will move the Supreme Court challenging the move.

The move violates the federal principles and structure of the Constitution, he said.

Contending that majority of the people of Andhra Pradesh are against the bifurcation, he said when a resolution in this regard is moved in the State Assembly, “We will ensure that it is defeated.”

“I will move the Supreme Court challenging the Union Cabinet’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh,” he told PTI

Mr. Rajagopal, who represents the Vijayawada constituency, expressed confidence that other parliamentarians and ministers from the region will support him.
