RAJKOT: Members of the Rajkot Bar Association on Wednesday locked the premises of the district and sessions court in protest against the non-filling up of the vacant posts of judges in the district court.

The members also unanimously decided to boycott all court proceedings from October 11 to 15, and would resort to rasta roko agitation on Thursday.

The members of the association also sat on a token fast in front of the court and decided to further intensify their agitation.

The advocates shouted slogans against the failure of the state judiciary to fill-up the vacant posts for the past number of years.

The striking advocates locked the front door of the sessions court besides other courts functioning in the premises.

President of the association Tulsidas Gondaliya told TNN that the agitating lawyers did not even allow the judges and petitioners to enter the court premises. About 250 members of the association took part in the agitation.

As many as eight posts are vacant in various courts in the city itself. As a result of this, there are delays in judgments.

The agitating members of the association also threatened that even after this if their problem was not solved, then they would be forced to march to the High court.

TIMES NEWS NETWORK
RAJKOT: There has been a three-foot drop in the water level at Aji-3 dam near Rajkot. The dam is one of the main sources of drinking water for the people of the city.

Sources in the water works department of the Rajkot Municipal Corporation told TNN on Wednesday that the civic body had spent almost Rs 5 crore to procure water from the dam.

They said there had been a drop in the water level of all the major dams supplying water to the city. It's also believed that large amounts of water are stolen from these dams.

"The quantity of water stolen from the dams could have served the water requirements of the city for four months," the sources pointed out.

While there has been a drop of 183 MCFT from Bhadar dam, it's 113 from Aji-3 dam and 21 from Nyari-2 dam.

Sources also point to the fact that water was being released for irrigation much before the state government's sanction.
