Union Law Minister, Kiren Rijiju has said that he has never made any statement regarding the establishment of Allahabad High Court's bench at Agra.

This statement by Union Law Minister has come in the backdrop of various media reports claiming that the Law Minister had made a statement regarding the creation of Bench of Allahabad High Court at Agra and that the demand was under active consideration.

Yesterday, the Allahabad High Court Bar Association Elders' Committee issued a resolution/public statement calling the alleged Statement of Union Law Minister, Kiren Rijiju regarding the creation of Bench of Allahabad High Court at Agra as 'Childish' and 'Politically motivated'.

Condemning this resolution passed by the Allahabad High Court Bar Association Elders' Committee, Union Law Minister said that he never made any statement regarding the establishment of HC's bench at Agra and when a representation was submitted to him at Agra, he only said that Govt will look into the memorandum.

It may be noted that when a report in this regard [Allahabad High Court Bar Association Elders' Committee resolution] was published by Live Law, Union Law Minister Kiren Rijuju, by referring to Live Law's report, issued the following statement on Twitter:

"I strongly condemn the statement of Allahabad High Court Bar Association Elders' Committee. I've never made a statement on the subject of HC Bench. When a representation was submitted to me at Agra, I only said that Govt will look into the memorandum."

Essentially, issuing a public statement, the Allahabad High Court Bar Association Elders' Committee yesterday said that it had taken note of the statement of the Union Law Minister regarding the creation of Bench of Hon'ble High Court in Agra with concern.

Significantly, the Cabinet Minister in the Uttar Pradesh Government, Siddharth Nath Singh clarified on Tuesday that no bench of the Allahabad High Court would be set up in western Uttar Pradesh.

This statement was issued by the UP Minister in response to a question on Union Law Minister Kiren Rijuji's alleged statement that a bench would be set up in Agra. "There is no such plan and no preparation in the future," Siddharth Nath said.
