Orissa High Court Bar Association decided to call off its ongoing strike

Cuttack:2/11/19 The Orissa High Court Bar Association today decided to call off its ongoing strike. They lawyers will resume work from Monday.

The decision was taken at the general body meeting of the association which was convened today.

“Though we will resume work from Monday, but will continue to press for our demands,” said association president Gopalkrushna Mohanty.

Lawyers have been abstaining from court work since October 14 in protest against the recommendation by the Supreme Court Collegium for appointment of judges to the Orissa High Court.

Taking the situation seriously, the Supreme Court had on October 24 warned that the conduct of the agitating lawyers fell within the domain of contempt of court. It had also issued notices to the association president, asking him to be present in person on November 8, the day fixed for next hearing on the matter.

Apart from the SC, the Bar Council of India, too, has directed the association to call off the agitation immediately.
