We urge all the lawyers of the State and the Country to cease-work on April 2 to protect the judiciary,” All Odisha Lawyers’ Association president Gyana Ranjan Mohanty told mediapersons on Friday.

Association general secretary Bibhu Prasad Tripathy called their proposed cease-work as ‘save the judiciary day’ and urged all bar associations in the State to protest, what they alleged was a politically motivated step. They will also submit a memorandum to the President, Prime Minister and to the high command of the principal Opposition party.  Bhubaneswar Bar Association president Durga Madhav Mishra was also present.
