Ignoring the Western Odisha Bandh call given by lawyers of Sambalpur, life in Balangir town went on as usual with shops and other business establishments remaining open and buses plying.
On their part, the lawyers of Balangir district are continuing their own agitation demanding setting up of a permanent Bench of the Odisha High Court at Balangir.
Local advocate Bhavani Satpathy said, “Since last 40 years, members of the Balangir district bar have been demanding establishment of a High Court Bench at Balangir. Since August 23 this year, we have been continuing our agitation in support of our demand. We are not supporting the Western Odisha Bandh call given by the Central Action Committee. The lawyers of Balangir are carrying out their cease-work agitation for setting up of a permanent High Court Bench here. And the next course of agitation will be decided at a meeting scheduled to be held on September 21.”
Several other local lawyers said that a High Court had been inaugurated here as far back as on September 6, 1940 and it was functioning in the pre-Independence days.
