Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave has withdrawn his resignation as SCBA President . Speaking to LiveLaw Dave said that he has withdrawn his resignation since Chief Justice of India has suggested him to do so in a public function organized in Supreme Court Today
Supreme Court Bar Association President Dushyant Dave has resigned on February 15, allegedly following a rift between the President Dave and Secretary, Gaurav Bhatia. He tendered his resignation, with “sincere apology” for taking the step, stating, “I must place on record my gratitude to all those who put their faith in me and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. I must however tender my sincere apology for taking this step. I hope and trust you will understand my predicament. I wish the SCBA lots of good luck and assure that as a Member I will always be happy to extend my help if needed.” The step was taken after Mr. Dave was condemned at the Executive Committee meeting held at 4 today.
The rift between SCBA President and Secretary also becomes evident through a letter addressed to the secretary on February 14, wherein Mr. Dave had expressed his “strong reservations” about the initiation of process of maintaining a Register in memory of retiring Judges on retirement of Justice Iqbal, without his approval. “You would recall our discussion on Wednesday last (followed by mysms to that effect) saying that though I did not approve of this move, I would like the EC to consider the same in its meeting fixed on Monday the 15th Feb. However without informing me and keeping me in complete dark you went ahead and got the same done on Saturday and Sunday. The whole exercise was carried out in a manner contrary to ethos and working of the EC and clearly improperly, if not illegally,” the letter had said.
