The Kadi Bar Association in Mehsana district has decided that in the future they will not pass a resolution proposing secession of work.
The decision comes after the Mehsana district principal judge rejected their demand of a senior division civil court in the taluka and shifted all the three courts of Kadi taluka to Mehsana, 45 km from Kadi.
On Tuesday, president of Kadi Bar Association Prakash Chandra Raval gave a written submission to the acting Chief Justice of the Gujarat High Court in this connection. He stated, "The members of association have unanimously decided that they give this undertaking to the High Court that in future they will not pass any resolution proposing secession of work..."
The bar association was on strike since May 21 demanding a senior division civil court be set up at Kadi. To press their demand, they had stopped participating in court proceedings in judicial magistrate courts at Kadi. There are judicial magistrate courts at Kadi.
According to Raval, four days after the strike was announced, the district judge closed down all the three courts in the taluka and shifted them to Mehsana.
He said Mehsana is 45 km from Kadi which led to a crisis among the lawyers as well as clients. Following the shifting of courts from Kadi, the association approached the High Court and Bar Council of Gujarat, he added.
On June 28, district principal judge S C Srivastava sent a letter to the president of Kadi Bar Association following the latter's request to resolve the issue. The letter stated that "the association should first give a written undertaking before the High Court that in future they wouldn't pass any resolution proposing cessation of work..."
Raval said association had fulfilled the direction and it believed that all the three courts would be shifted back to Kadi taluka in couple of days. Another lawyer in Kadi, Manish Raval, said in the history of Kadi, which has proper courts since the time of Britishers, this is the first instance that Kadi is left without a court.
