Ghaziabad: Work was affected in various
courts in the district following a five-day strike by lawyers
to protest the Allahabad High Court`s order reducing the
summer vacation of civil advocates by 15 days.

Ghaziabad District Judge Vishnu Chand Gupta met with the
representatives of the Bar Association and conveyed to them a
"direction" of the Supreme Court not to strike work over
"petty issues" as it hampers court work and causes
inconvenience to undertrials.

But the Bar Association maintained that the issue of
reducing summer vacation of the advocates to 15 days from one
month was a "serious" matter and went on a strike since
yesterday.

Court proceeding in over 1.87 lakh cases have been
affected due to the strike.

Jail Superintendent V K Singh said the strikes cause
problems to the prison administration too as hearings get
delayed.
