Cuttack lawyers boycott courts over SAT closurePTI | Cuttack | Updated: 09-08-2019 20:10 IST | Created: 09-08-2019 20:10 IST
Lawyers on Friday boycotted courts including the Orissa High Court here to protest the abolition of the Odisha State Administrative Tribunal. Following a proposal from Odisha government, the Union government earlier this week abolished the SAT.
Expressing gratitude to the lawyers of the city for their solidarity, SAT bar association secretary P K Rout claimed that their token protest against the abolition of all benches of the SAT across the state was a "success". "We will decide our next course of action next week seeking cooperation from other bar associations of the state", Rout said.
