Lawyers in eight districts of western Odisha have geared up for a total bandh in their respective districts on Tuesday after the Sambalpur District Bar Association failed to elicit a positive response from the State Government over its demand to arrest Collector Mrinalini Darswal within the deadline of May 7.
The Sambalpur District Bar, which met on Sunday to decide on its next course of action, gave the bandh call for all 10 western districts, to which all other district Bars have responded positively.
The bandh is supposed to severely affect public life and disrupt vehicular communication.
The lawyers-Collector row in Sambalpur has got intensified despite a Crime Branch inquiry ordered by the the Odisha Government. The lawyers have rejected the CB probe and, in stead, demanded a judicial inquiry into the April 23 incident while persisting with their stir demanding the Collector’s arrest.
While the Orissa High Court Bar Association and the Bhubaneswar Bar Association have expressed solidarity with their Sambalpur fraternity by resorting to token cease-work, they appear to be in no mood to be carried away by the stubborn attitude of the Sambalpur Bar. Lawyers in the coastal districts are attending courts as usual, not bothered by the happenings.
