In such a situation, the High Court had ordered the lawyers to return to work. Now the lawyers have called off the strike on the recommendation of the State Advocates Council.
Giving information about this, President of Madhya Pradesh State Advocates Council, Prem Singh Bhadauria said that taking cognizance of the lawyers’ strike in Madhya Pradesh, the Supreme Court has given time for talks on March 29. I am leaving for Delhi. When there is talk of talks on one side, it was not proper for us lawyers to be on strike. Due to this, it has been unanimously decided to postpone this strike.
Lawyers’ strike in Madhya Pradesh postponed
It may be noted that the High Court had ordered the subordinate courts to dispose of 25 marked cases in three months. PC Kothari, President of the District Advocates Association, Bhopal said that in December 2022, the Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court had passed an order for all the courts of Madhya Pradesh for speedy disposal of 25-25 old cases. Due to this, the litigants along with the lawyers are facing immense inconvenience. Judges are under pressure to dispose of old cases quickly. In such a situation, the judges are not hearing new cases. Long dates are being set for new episodes.
PC Kothari said that there was a demand on behalf of the Advocates Association in the past also to withdraw this order, but the order was not withdrawn. In protest against this, the Sangh had decided to separate from the work of the court. Kothari says that we have not yet received any official letter to end the strike. Now we will see on what terms are being talked about. After this further decision will be taken. About 8 thousand lawyers are registered in Bhopal District Advocates Association.
