Virendra Gahwai, Bilaspur. A petition was filed in the High Court against giving the post of senior advocate to lawyers, which has been rejected by the High Court. However, the double bench of Chief Justice Ramesh Sinha and Ravindra Kumar Aggarwal has stated the need to amend the rules. It has also been said that the possibility of misuse of the current rules cannot be ruled out.
Let us tell you that Badshah Singh of Bilaspur had filed a petition in the High Court, in which it was said that giving the post of senior advocate to lawyers gives rise to a separate class among the lawyers. In the petition, Abhishek Sinha, Ashish Srivastava, Fauzia Mirza, Govind Ram Miri, Kishore Bhaduri, Prafulla Kumar Bharat, Rajiv Srivastava, Rajesh Kumar Pandey, former Advocate General Satish Chandra Verma, Sharmila Singhai, Vivek Ranjan Tiwari and Yogesh Chandra Verma should be made senior advocates. But objection was raised. It was said in the petition that while being the Advocate General, Satish Chandra Verma nominated himself. Along with this, only some favorite lawyers were made senior advocates, which is wrong.
During the hearing of the case, the High Court had issued notice to the government and the lawyers appointed as senior officers. In response, on behalf of Verma, who was the then Advocate General, it was said that he had distanced himself from the committee during the selection. Let us tell you that a committee has been formed in the High Court for the appointment of senior advocates. Apart from the Chief Justice, this committee consists of two senior justices, a senior advocate and an advocate general. Due to the absence of even one of them, a permanent committee cannot be formed. Senior advocates are given prominence during hearings in the High Court. After hearing both the sides in the case, the High Court has rejected the petition.
