Delegation of lawyers ask for permanent bench of Orissa High Court

A delegation of lawyers today asked the Odisha government to send a team to Delhi to talk to the Centre for setting up of a permanent bench of the Orissa High Court in the western region of the state.

The demand was made by a 15-member delegation of the Central Action Committee (CAC) of lawyers from western Odisha when they met Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at the secretariat here.

The delegation included Sambalpur MLA Raseswar Panigrahi and members of the bar association. They said the establishment of a bench of the high court in Western region is a long-standing demand.

"Though the chief minister assured us that he would write another letter to the Centre supporting establishment of a permanent bench of the high court in the western region, we have demanded that a delegation of the state government should visit Delhi and talk to the Centre," convener of the CAC, Ashok Das told reporters.

Das said the MPs from the state should also make concerted effort to ensure that a bill on the establishment on the permanent bench in the western region is passed in Parliament this monsoon session.
