Bar members get back voting rights

Rohtak, May 31
Mr Basesher Singh, Additional Civil Judge (Senior division), Bahadurgarh, has ruled that 154 members of the Jhajjar District Bar Association, who were debarred from casting their votes through the illegal proceedings of a meeting held on May 16, are entitled to cast their votes in the elections to the association this year. In the judgement delivered on Thursday, the judge held the proceedings of the meeting presided over by Mr Om Parkash Deswal on May 16 as “ultra vires of the provision of the constitution applicable to the Bar Association and binding on the applicants”.

The plaintiffs, Mr Shivraj Malik and Mr Kuldeep Balhara, advocates, stated in their appeal that Mr Satish Chahar was elected as president of the Jhajjar District Bar Association last year. They said Mr Om Parkash Deswal, a lawyer practising in Jhajjar district, persuaded certain lawyers and held a meeting on May 16. The voting rights of 154 members of the association, including that of two petitioners, were cancelled at this meeting in gross violation of the constitution of the association. However, their membership was maintained.

The plaintiffs said that Mr O. P. Deswal again held a meeting of certain lawyers and ousted Mr Satish Chahar from the membership of the Bar on May 28. They said a contempt of court petition was filed against Mr Deswal in this regard and the court issued a notice to him this evening.
