dated July 06, 1954: High Court at Guntur

"The Andhra High Court is the culmination of an intense desire on the part of the people of Andhra to lead a community life of their own. The High Court will be widely welcomed because it will, to some extent, bring justice nearer home to the parties," observed Dr. Kailas Nath Katju, Union Home Minister, while inaugurating the High Court of Andhra in Guntur on July 5. Dr. Katju expressed the confidence that the great traditions built by the Madras High Court during the last hundred years would be fully maintained and, indeed, strengthened in Andhra Desa and that the ties between the Andhra and Madras High Courts would continue to be strong and affectionate for years to come. Dr. Katju referred to the distinguished role High Courts in India and courts subordinate to them had played in our national life as guardians of the liberty of the citizen and paid a tribute to the British judges of the past, who, acting strictly according to the judicial traditions of their own country, "discharged their duty with the utmost integrity, impartiality and independence." Guntur town wore a festival appearance, with all important buildings decorated with festoons and mango leaves. Mr. P.V.Rajamannar, Chief Justice of Madras, who also spoke on the occasion, said it was "a most memorable day in the history of the Andhra State." Though the Andhra State came into being on October 1, 1953, it might be said that it was only today that its fulfilment had been completed. Mr. Justice K. Subba Rao, Chief Justice of the Andhra High Court, who spoke next, said: "We are all proud of the happy occasion. When the Andhra State came into existence, there was a feeling of incompleteness. But now, with the constitution of the High Court, the long-standing desire and aspirations of the Andhras have been fulfilled."
