BANGALORE: The Federation of Bar Associations in Karnataka and the Karnataka Young Advocates Association have appealed to the Supreme Court Collegium and the Union Government to take action either to allow Chief Justice of Karnataka P.D. Dinakaran to attend the court proceedings regularly or to transfer him to another High Court.
Federation president K.N. Subba Reddy told presspersons here on Saturday that Mr. Dinakaran has not been discharging his duty ever since allegations of land encroachment were made against him. A vacuum has been created in the High Court of Karnataka by this, he said.
Members of the two bodies would stage a protest in front of High Court on June 2 to press their point, Mr. Reddy said. He cited the examples of Kolkata and Punjab High Courts where some judges had cases pending against them but still attended court proceedings.
Mr. Dinakaran should also attend regular court work, he said. Any differences between the Bangalore Advocates Association and the Chief Justice should be sorted out amicably.
