The demand for a high court bench in Western UP was feuled when advocates from as many as 22 districts came together under the banner of West UP High Court Bench Sangharsh Samiti and decided to boycott the Mega Lok Adalat which is to be held on 6th day of December 2014. This demand was first pursued by the 2nd Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Late Sri Sampurnanand in 1955, for which a Jaswant Singh Committee was established in 1981 to decide on the matter. Though the committee gave a recommendation for establishing a bench in 1985, there is still a positive response to be seen from the Central Government. The District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) is organizing the second Mega National Lok Adalat by the direction of Supreme Court of India under the aegis of National Legal Services Authority (NLSA) and UP State Legal Services Authority on December 6. Last year, a total of 37 lakh cases were admitted by the first Mega National Lok Adalat. The advocates are showing the protest against the delay caused by the Central Government. The notices for hearings have already been served to the respondents of priority cases. It will be interesting to see the outcome of this boycott as it can cause conflicts between the clients and their attorneys.
