Tagana: Lawyers protest over transfer of High Court judge to Patna Latest News India | Techy Kings


Telangana High Court lawyers on Friday boycotted court proceedings for the second consecutive day against the Supreme Court collegium’s recommendation to transfer senior judge Justice A Abhishek Reddy to the Patna High Court.

The executive committee of the Telangana High Court Advocates Association held an extraordinary general body meeting at the court premises and decided to continue the boycott of the courts until Justice Reddy’s transfer is cancelled.

“A delegation of the association is leaving for New Delhi on Saturday morning to meet Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and make a representation to him requesting him to review the decision. The appointment has been given,” said association general secretary Gudipalli Mulla Reddy.

More than 3,000 lawyers of the High Court and all subordinate courts in Telangana abstained from work, he said on Friday. Mulla Reddy said, “We will continue the strike till Justice Reddy’s transfer is withdrawn.”

The secretary of the association said that they have already apprised Chief Justice of Telangana High Court Ajal Bhuyan about the seriousness of the situation and requested the CJI to convey the same. “We will review the situation on Monday before taking a call on the future course of action,” he said.

The association, which met under the chairmanship of President V Raghunath, strongly condemned the transfer of elected judges which would affect the independence of the judiciary.

Soon after the meeting, members of the association protested outside the High Court and raised slogans against the Supreme Court’s recommendation to transfer the Telangana High Court judge to Patna.

Also in April, the association strongly opposed the transfer of judges from Telangana and the “import” of judges from other states, particularly Andhra Pradesh. He wrote a letter to former President of India Ram Nath Kovind in this regard.

The association alleged that “injustice was done to the Telangana legal community in the appointment of judges to the High Court during the joint Andhra Pradesh government”.

The Joint Action Committee JAC said that the same situation continued even after the formation of a separate Telangana state.
