Telugu Advocates In Delhi Stand By Jagan

Several Telugu advocates belonging to Bar Council of India and Delhi Bar Association found fault with the association leaders adopting resolution attacking Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Mohan Reddy for lodging a complaint with chief justice of India against a section of judiciary.

It may be mentioned that both the bar council and bar association had adopted resolutions condemning the letter written by Jagan to CJI making allegations against Supreme Court judge N V Ramana and some high court judges stating that they were trying to topple his government.

The resolution said Jagan had chosen to demoralise the judges and judiciary by writing such a letter. It pointed out that Jagan himself was facing several CBI cases and in order to prevent the trial, he had made allegations against judiciary.

“Since as per the judicial principles and discipline, judges cannot react on such letters, the bar councils and senior lawyers should open up against such attacks on judiciary,” the resolution said.

However, the Telugu advocates of Delhi high court and Supreme Court said the bar council or bar association had no locus standi in adopting a resolution against the Andhra Pradesh chief minister.

“The association leaders did not even call for a general body meeting but passed a unilateral resolution,” they alleged.

Stating that it was not a fight between legislature and judiciary, the Telugu advocates said the chief minister had waited patiently for a long time before opening up.

He had written to the chief justice of India only after gathering all the evidences through his intelligence sources, they said.

They also defended release of the letter along with the charges made against Ramana and other judges.

“Nowhere in the Constitution is there any provision prohibiting any issue from being disclosed in public,” they said.

The Telugu advocates said the bar associations should stand by the people and not the benches. The resolutions adopted by the bar associations had no value at all.

“This is not the issue of just Telugu people, but that of 130 crore Indians. We should not conceal corruption wherever it is. We should stand by Jagan who is fighting for the change in system,” the advocates said.
