The Advocates of the Tehsil Bar Association Purwa, District Unnao on Wednesday submitted before the Allahabad High Court that they will not pass any irresponsible resolution or call for strike hampering the judicial functioning of Courts.
A single-judge bench of Justice Jaspreet Singh passed this order while hearing a petition filed by one Anita Pandey. The petitioner approached the Allahabad High Court with her grievance that she had filed an application for mutation before the Naib Tehsildar Asoha, Tehsil Purwa, District Unnao and upon registration of the said application, objections were invited, and since thereafter, the matter remained pending and no substantial progress had been made.
Perusing the order-sheet, the Court found that right from August 22, 2019 till February 3, 2020, on each of the dates so fixed in the matter, the members of the bar abstained from judicial work.
“It is an alarming situation where the judicial functioning is being hampered by resolutions passed of the members of the bar,”
the HC had noted in its November 19, 2020 order.
In pursuance of the order passed by the Court earlier, Akhilesh Awasthi, Counsel as well as Member of Uttar Pradesh Bar Council along with Prashant Singh Atal, Counsel, Member of UP Bar Council, Gangan Mahesh Yadav, Vidya Shanker Pandey and Ayodhya Prasad, who are all members of the Tehsil Bar Association Purwa, District Unnao are present.
The aforesaid persons were aware of the reason why they were called upon by the Court to ensure that unnecessary strike/resolution may not be passed by the Bar Association so that judicial functioning is hampered.
Akhilesh Awasthi and Prashant Singh Atal have used their good offices and has been able to develop a consensus amongst the respectable member/leader of the Tehsil Bar Association Purwa, District Unnao.
The Court was also assured that they shall co-operate and create an atmosphere conducive for proper judicial functioning with minimum obstruction and resistance.
Taking note of the statement made at the Bar, the Court ordered that no further orders are required to be passed. The Court also appreciated both Akhilesh Awasthi and Prashant Singh Atal for their efforts and time spent and energy to mobilize their good offices in order to arrive at the consensus for resolving the deadlock.
