The Gujarat High Court Advocates Association Tuesday passed a resolution to abstain from work for an indefinite period from Jan 13 to protest the non-appointment of judges.
GHAA president Yatin Oza said the resolution condemned the inaction of the central government and other constitutional dignitaries over the issue. The resolution opposes the central government and Supreme Court’s discriminatory treatment of people of Gujarat, Oza said.
He claimed that the proposals for appointments in Gujarat were pending for last 21 months but no action was taken.
‘The matter is now lying with the president of India who has not given approval since last four weeks whereas in other cases it took only a few days,’ he claimed.
Oza said his organisation would also request other bar associations across the state to observe the strike.
The bar association had earlier given a strike call Dec 7 on the same issue.
