BANGALORE: The Advocates’ Association of Bangalore passed a resolution on Thursday seeking the transfer of Chief Justice D H Waghela, an Association press release said.

“We have passed a resolution seeking transfer of the chief justice over various issues, primarily for not appointing judges in the lower judiciary as well as in the high court. We will submit a copy of the resolution to the Supreme Court,” said advocate K N Subbareddy, the president of the association.

Referring to the resolution, Karnataka Bar Council chairman Gopalaswamy C R said, “The resolution is not passed by the Bar Council. Moreover, the council has not received any intimation about any such resolution.”

Senior advocate Ashok Haranahalli said, “This is probably the first time such a resolution has been passed. However, the resolution is not based on any allegation of his judicial conduct.” Senior advocate B V Acharya refused to subscribe to the resolution.
