Judicial work was paralysed at the Allahabad High Court as advocates abstained from work in protest against a recent indication from the Centre that it might consider setting up a separate bench of the court in western Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing the protesting lawyers, president of the High Court Bar Association V C Mishra decried the reported statement of Union Minister Sachin Pilot whereby he had said that a bench in western Uttar Pradesh could be set up if such a proposal was sent to the Centre by the state government.

Mishra alleged that the minister’s statement was “unconstitutional as the Constitution does not provide for more than one High Court in one state”.
