Surat: Demonstration of lawyers with huge rally against court transfer


All the lawyers of Surat Court are unitedly opposing the transfer of the court building. The court at Athwalines in the heart of Surat is set to be shifted to Jiav Budiya area. In protest against this, the lawyers took out a huge rally and raised slogans and submitted a memorandum to the District Collector.

Following which all our lawyers have passed a resolution not to go there. However, with no solution in sight, we organized a massive rally today. In which all the lawyers participated.
