Telangana and Andhra Pradesh lawyers to abstain from work on March 1

By LawStreet News Network      28 February, 2018 02:52 AM      0 Comments

In an Extraordinary General Body Meeting (EGM) held yesterday, the members of Telangana High Court Advocates Association (THCAA) and Andhra Pradesh High Court Advocates Association (APHCAA) have unanimously decided to abstain from court work on March 1 and 2, 2018.

The decision has been taken to demand action by the Central Government, the State Government and the Supreme Court on the issue of huge judicial vacancies at the High Court as well as to appoint a regular Chief Justice. The post has been vacant since 2015.

The members have also put up a demand to set up a Bench of Supreme Court at Hyderabad.

To draw the attention of the authorities the members have decided to stage a protest rally from the Bar Association to the Medina building, which is less than half a kilometer away.

The problem of growing judicial vacancies is gravely affecting the Judicial System of our Country. With lawyers agitating at Odisha and Calcutta, this is the third such similar case in recent times. It is highly crucial for our authorities to take some timely action otherwise it won't be long for our judicial system to fall into pieces.
