HYDERABAD: Elections to the Telangana High Court Advocates’ Association, the first in the new state of Telangana, will be held on the court premises here on Wednesday. Polling will be held from 10 am to 4.30 pm.  The 4,400 voters enrolled with the association will elect president, vice-president, two secretaries, one joint secretary, one treasurer, one librarian and eight executive committee members.

Campaigning has intensified and a majority of the 57 contestants are those who participated in the separate Telangana agitation.

Bringing pressure on the Union as well as the Telangana and AP state governments for early bifurcation of the common HC and provision of better facilities for advocates at the HC are among the major promises being made by the candidates. Besides, they are promising to bridge the gap, if any, between the Bar and the Bench in the interest of the advocate community.

Senior counsel Sarasani Satyam Reddy, who is contesting for the post of president, said advocates’ welfare was his top priority.

Gandra Mohan Rao, another aspirant to the post, said he would strive to make the Association an effective body so that the court administration has to consult it before taking any decision relating to posting of cases, delivery of cause lists, etc. “The TS HC Advocates Association will work in coordination with the AP Advocates’ Association to settle all pending issues including bifurcation of the common High Court,” he said.
