Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samithi MP K Kavitha on Tuesday stepped up her demand for bifurcating the High Court in Hyderabad following division of Andhra Pradesh.

Alleging that the Centre was "insensitive" in not bifurcating the High Court, she said her father and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao have proposed to hold a protest in Delhi.

She, however, said the Telangana government did not want things to "escalate to that level" and appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the issue.

"Our Chief Minister is very disheartened by the insensitivity of the Central government. We propose to go ahead and express our protest in Delhi. But, we do not want things to escalate to that level. We once again sincerely appeal to honourable Prime Minister to intervene at this juncture and bifurcate the High Court," Kavitha told reporters in Hydrabad.

It would not be good if the Chief Minister holds a dharna in Delhi as it will become an international news, she said, urging the Centre to act to prevent such a protest from happening.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi MPs raised the issue in Parliament and Rao appealed to Modi "10 times" for bifurcation of the High Court, she said.

Prime Minister has not responded on the demand for bifurcation of the High Court so far and Congress president Sonia Gandhi also never spoke on the issue in Parliament though she talked about the interests of Andhra Pradesh, she alleged.

Kavitha claimed that the Centre was not bifurcating the High Court under the political pressure by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi stance came against the backdrop of agitation by lawyers and judges against provisional allocation of judicial officers between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

The High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad on Monday suspended two judges on disciplinary grounds following the agitation.

Over 100 judges under the banner of Telangana Judges Association on Sunday took out a procession here in protest against the provisional allocation.

Kavitha alleged that a "conspiracy" has been hatched by the Andhra Pradesh government and some "Andhra elders at the Centre" are giving Andhra Judges the option to work in Telangana.
