The Supreme Court, on the 3rd of June, reviewed a petition, filed by the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRC) Government.
The YSRCP Government moved the SC, challenging the order of the Andhra Pradesh (A.P.,) High Court (HC) for removing YSRCP colour paint on public buildings and offices.
However, in a major setback for the YSRCP Government, the SC also announced the verdict in favour of the A.P., HC and ordered the removal of colours. The SC asked the YSRCP Government to remove it within 4 weeks from today, the 3rd of June and also warned of filing contempt of court.
Earlier, the petition has been filed in the Andhra Pradesh High Court stating that the state government has painted YSRCP colours to public offices. The court ordered the colors be removed.
On the 23rd of April, the Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy led YSRCP issued a Government Order (GO) 623 to colour all buildings and offices of white, green and blue, which is coincidentally the colour of YSRCP symbol.
Later, the GO was challenged in the A.P., High Court and the A.P., High Court announced the judgement against the YSRCP Government.
