In a setback to the government of Andhra Pradesh, the High Court of Andhra Pradesh suspended the G.O.19 issued by the government in taking over the management of Sangam dairy after the recent arrest of its chairman Dhulipala Narendra Kumar. The court gave clear directions that the directors can go ahead with the day-to-day operations of the Sangam dairy and the high court made it clear that the directors needed to notify the court if they wanted to sell any assets of the dairy.
The government of Andhra Pradesh on the 27th of April released G.O.No 19 transferring the management of the Sangam dairy to A.P Dairy development corporation. Simultaneously sub-collector of the Tenali division, Guntur district has been appointed to take over the day-to-day operations of the dairy, claiming to ensure smooth and uninterrupted functioning of the dairy. The G.O was released after the arrest of the Sangam dairy chairman Dhulipala Narendra after the alleged irregularities by the ACB.
Following the takeover of the Sangam dairy by the government, the directors of the Sangam dairy have approached the state high court seeking relief from the misuse of power by the government and the takeover of the dairy.
