AGARTALA, Feb 12 (TIWN): Along with the Bar Council of India (BCI), Tripura Bar Council has also organized a massive protest as a part of nationwide lawyers' agitation.

A massive protest kicked off at the High Court in Tripura in the presence of eminent lawyers Bhaskar Debbarma, Pijush Biswas, Harekrishna Bhowmik and many more leading figures from the state advocates participated in the massive protest.

BCI said the lawyers are protesting against the present government's inaction towards their causes. "Around 17 lakh lawyers across the country are on the road on Tuesday”.

The Bar Council of India (BCI), along with all the bar councils and associations of Delhi, also on a protest march today, which has lightly hampered judicial work in courts.

On the other hand, Bar Council of Delhi said the protest is related to the demands made at a joint meeting held between BCI and the state bar council on February 2. Some of the demands include medical facilities, insurance, housing schemes and financial assistance to young lawyers.

Advocate K C Mittal, Bar Council of Delhi chairman, said it is for the first time that lawyers will come out to protest against the Centre.

"Some states have come out with budgetary provisions on yearly basis for advocates' welfare. However, those schemes are restricted to just those states and are not applicable to the legal fraternity at large," he said.
