Chandigarh, April 20
UT Administration’s decision to terminate the ADA, Ms Anuradha Bali, has caused major ripples among different factions of the District Bar Association(DBA). Where a majority of the members are selling the view that advocates’ interference in an administrative decision is not in good taste, the other faction is in favour of garnering support for the ouster of the ADA. Ms Bali had been terminated by the Administration on April 18.

Elected members of the District Bar Association today held a meeting in the court and decided not to support Ms Anuradha Bali. The Secretary, Mr N.K Kapil, said the termination of Ms Anuradha Bali, was an administrative action and bar cannot interfere in it.

Mr Kapil further added that there was no ground to support her as she was not a member of district bar association and the executive body had not received requisition from Ms Anuradha Bali, till date.

Meanwhile, a group of lawyers comprising 50 members held a meeting in the bar association room at about 1 p.m. Number of advocates addressed the gathering and said Ms Bali, had become a victim of the system and it was their moral duty to support her. Later, Ms Bali also addressed the advocates and claimed that she would file a petition against the persons responsible for her termination. Interestingly she had given a list of about 67 advocates who had signed a statement condemning the decision.
