JAMMU: J&K High Court Bar Association Jammu under leadership of its President senior Adv M K Bhardwaj held a massive protest on Friday and took out a rally, in support of their long pending demands. The Bar members abstained from work in all Courts including High Court, District Courts, Tribunals & Commissions. All office bearers namelyMohinder Pal Singh Pali, Surjeet Singh Andotra, Aditya Sharma, Amandeep Singh, Rohit Sharma, Gagandeep Singh Lucky, Yaseer Farooq Khan, Karanjeet Singh Johal, Naresh Kumar besides many senior & young lawyers participated in the protest. Pertinent to mention here that earlier on July 18, 2022, the Bar Association held a protest in support of their demands and had urged UT administration to immediately resolve all the demands of the legal fraternity without any further delay but nothing was done by the administration. Moreover, several times the Bar had represented before the LG through Memorandum, however, despite passage of several months, Government failed to fulfill genuine demands of the Association, thereby compelling Bar Association to adopt path of agitation.
While speaking on the occasion, M K Bhardwaj categorically stated, “We staged our protest for second time today as on first day we staged protest in the premises of the Court complex and on that day we warned the Government to fulfill our demands failing which we would intensify our protest. Today, we came on roads as a mark of protest so that the Administration, which is in deep slumber, should do the needful at the earliest.” He further asked UT administration not to adopt delaying tactics in resolving the genuine long pending demands/issues of legal fraternity and fulfill the same at the earliest.
