CJ issue: Bar Council to meet on October 2

R Abdul Riyaz Khan, President, KSBC said the Bar is waiting for the collegium to decide on the fate of the Chief Justice. “The Supreme Court collegium is meeting today. We will meet after the decision,” he said.

He said that the Bar, with a strength of 70,000 advocates was planning to meet on 17 September, but put the meet off after the Bar Association decided to convene a meeting on Thursday. “Some of the senior counsels, who are the members, decided to adopt a wait and watch strategy. Moreover, the Association had already called for a meeting, so we decided to postpone the meeting,” he said.

He said that the KSBC is receiving calls from across the State to take a decision at the earliest in this regard. Meanwhile, the Advocates Associations across the state have come out with resolutions in connections with allegations against Chief Justice P D Dinakaran.
The High Court Circuit Bench Advocates Association (HCCBAA), which met on Thursday afternoon, has resolved that the Chief Justice of India must constitute a fact finding committee to probe into the allegations.

B D Hiremath, President, HCCBAA said that Chief Justice P D Dinakaran should not be elevated to Supreme Court nor should he be allowed to continue as Chief Justice of Karnataka until the committee submits its report.
