Members of the Ganjam Bar Association on Tuesday boycotted court work demanding establishment of a permanent Bench of the Odisha High Court in Brahmapur.
The members also demanded that the Justice CR Pal Commission report on the demand for permanent HC Benches in different parts of the State be made public. “We denounce this report as we understand that it has not directly recommended establishment of a High Court Bench in Brahmapur,” said Bar president Basant Panda, adding, “We will continue our agitation till our demand is fulfilled.”
The members of the Bar including vice-president Siba Prasad Mishra, secretary Rama Prasad Panda and joint secretary Karunakara Panigrahi and senior lawyers like Prafulla Jagannath Padhy, Krushna Chandra Panda and Ashok Das staged a dharna in front of the court here.Earlier, the lawyers had decided that they would intensify the agitation during last four days of every month. On Tuesday, they ended their court boycott agitation and would join work from Wednesday.
