HYDERABAD: The Telangana Judges Association called off its 10-day strike and resumed worked on Wednesday.

Besides rejection of their leave applications by the High Court and the latter’s warning that it will consider other options to ensure that the litigant public do not suffer if it fails to withdraw the stir were the reasons that made the association withdraw the strike.

According to a member of the judges association, the general body of the association has unanimously resolved to honour the appeal of the Chief Justice of India, the governor and the Acting Chief Justice of the High Court and decided to join duties immediately.

The judges went on mass leave extending solidarity to the agitating Telangana advocates and judicial employees who were protesting since June 6. They even expressed their readiness of resigning their posts if the authorities concerned have failed to recall the provisional allocation list.

The Telangana advocates are continuing their strike demanding immediate recall of the provisional list of judicial officers, revocation of suspensions of judges and staff and bifurcation of the high court.
