Chief Justice S K Sinha criticised the Bar Council for boycotting district courts on grounds they were useless instead of resorting to proactive action.
Justice Sinha was addressing the inaugural address of a Book Fair organised by the Supreme Court Bar Association.
“Bar Council is not just about elections, senior advocates who are respected in the profession must step forward and ensure the Council uses its rules to combat the failure of securing justice in lower courts . Don’t be silent spectators!” Justice Sinha said.
"When we were in the Bar, it was effective and strong. We never supported when advocates made unjust demands," he said. He also asked the judiciary to come forward to stop the executive from usurping all the powers, according to bdnews24.com. -Mithun
