Lawyers’ strike: Supreme Court directs Bar Council of India to scrap licenses of agitating lawyers

by Dikhyaa Mohanty

The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Bar Council of India to cancel the license of agitating lawyers. It has also asked the district administrations to provide protection to judicial officials and others.  The bench expressed its anger after learning that court works have been affected badly due to lawyers’ protests over the setting up of High Court benches in the state.

“It is not feasible to come up with High Court bench in every district. It is not humanly possible to set up so many High Court benches in almost all districts. It is not possible practically and infrastructure wise. It is not prudent. Bihar is a big state but it has one High Court at Patna”, the bench stated.

It is pertinent to mention that the demand for a permanent bench of Orissa High Court in western Odisha at Sambalpur has been mounting for a long time.  The lawyers alleged that the Centre had sought a complete proposal for the establishment of a permanent bench, but the Odisha government is not taking any constructive step in this regard.
