Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association Jammu has given Jammu Bandh a call for August 29 in protest against the non-serious attitude of the Government towards their demands and issues.

The shutdown call has been given by the President Bar Association Jammu M.K Bharadwaj.

While addressing a press conference at District Court Complex Jammu, Bharadwaj said that they are agitating since long but the Government has maintained silence over demands and grievances. He said, “time and again we made it clear to the Government that in case our demands are not considered the lawyers fraternity will be left with no other option but to intensify the agitation”.

The Bar Association has support from traders organizations, civil society and other bodies of Jammu.

Bharadwaj said that they are ready to consider taking back the call, in case government shows interest in fulfilling their demands.

The main demand of the Bar Association Jammu is  the construction of a multi-storey building for housing all the judicial work— registration work, Commissions, CAT, DRT, AFT and other Tribunals within the court premises at Janipur.

“The other Bar Associations are also facing the same problems and they are also affected by the same issue of scattered Judicial Courts”, said Bhardwaj, who was accompanied by several officer bearers of the Association.

Due to the ongoing lengthy strike from the lawyers of the Jammu, the prisoners mostly undertrials from Kashmir Valley have been suffering immensely. (KNT)
