UNI, Patna, Nov. 14:
Over 70,000 Lawyers in
Bihar would Abstain from Work in the Evening Court from tomorrow onwards following an appeal from Bihar State Bar Council (BSBC). The Members of the Council, in its meeting held today under the Leadership of council Chairman B.P. Sharma, Resolved to Abstain from work from the day of commencement, citing law and other situation.
Lack of infrastructural facilities in civil courts across the state, especially poor power supply, was also stated to be another reason. Mr. Sharma said the situation in Bihar was quite different from Gujarat, where the evening courts were functioning as uninterrupted power supply was maintained. Besides, arrangements were available for coming to and going from the evening court for clients and lawyers, he added. The resolution also decided to request Patna High Court to withdraw its notification launching evening court system in civil courts across the state from November 15.
