Controversy has deepened in the matter of proposing the names of Supreme Court advocates on behalf of the Collegium in the matter of appointment of justices in the Allahabad High Court. The High Court Bar Association boycotted the judicial work by meeting after the lunch break on Friday in protest. It has been said that judicial work will not be done on Saturday also. The Bar Association said that this decision of the Collegium will not be tolerated. Bar strongly opposes this.
Radhakant Ojha, President and Senior Advocate of the High Court Bar Association presiding the meeting said that in the resolution sent by the High Court Bar Association Allahabad to the Chief Justice on March 16, 2022 and August 23, 2022, it was requested that the High Court in Allahabad Only advocates practicing in Allahabad and its Lucknow Bench should be appointed as Justices. But bypassing the proposal of the High Court Bar Association Allahabad, it is unfortunate that four advocates of the Supreme Court have been proposed for appointment by the collegium for appointment of justice.
