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

Issuing a public statement, Allahabad High Court Bar Association Elders' Committee has stated that it has taken note of the statement of the Union Law Minister regarding the creation of Bench of Hon'ble High Court in Agra with concern.

Stressing that though the Constitution contemplates the creation of benches at the Supreme Court level but not at the State level, the Committee has said that decentralization of judiciary has resulted in the eruption of corruption especially at the State and Central level

The resolution further states that as and when the General Elections fall due, such misleading statements are being issued by politicians at the helm of affairs which is nothing but a political stunt to gain undue advantage of voters from a particular district.

"It is an attempt to create a difference between the Bar of Agra & Meerut district, who have been fighting since long for creation of bench at Meerut," the statement adds.

The committee has also said that the Union Law Minister is supposed to know that without the concurrence of the Chief Justice of High Court, Allahabad, no such proposal can be aired.

"The person who is holding the post of Law Minister, is supposed to know this much of legal position. From the day one, it has been the consistent stand and opinion of the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court that creation of bench as for as U.P. is concern, is not required as there is already a bench at Lucknow. Especially when after the bifurcation of Hill 'Area from State of U.P. by creating a High Court in State of Uttaranchal. ."

Lastly, the Elders' Committee, in its meeting held today has constituted a "Sangharsh Samiti" to plan out the form of agitation to meet the challenge given by the Union Law Minister by making such childish, politically motivated & fabulous statement.
