"I feel that I have forfeited my right to continue as your Leader," said President of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), Dushyant Dave, and tendered his resignation on Thursday.

In his letter, Dave noted that the term of the Executive Committee has already come to an end and they had planned to hold virtual elections.

However, due to reservations held by some lawyers, the same could not be done and now, it may not be morally correct for him to continue as the President.

"Now I find it may not be possible to hold them as per the schedule declared by the Election Committee due to reservations held by some of you. I understand their position and have no quarrel with it but to me any further continuation as the President in these circumstances will be morally wrong," he said.

He also expressed "deep gratitude" to the members of the Executive Committee, saying, "You have done proud to this Institution , the SCBA . It was a privilege to be with you."

New Delhi .

Dear Members of the EC ,

Following recent events , I feel that I have forfeited my right to continue at your Leader and so I hereby tender my Resignation from the post of the President of the SCBA with immediate effect .

Our term has already come to an end . We sincerely decided to hold virtual election to elect a new body . Now I find it may not be possible to hold them as per the schedule declared by the Election Committee due to reservations held by some of you . I understand their position and have no quarrel with it but to me any further continuation as the President in these circumstances will be morally wrong .

I must place on record my deep gratitude to each of you for being part of this EC and contributing immensely during Covid 19 , perhaps the greatest challenge to mankind we will ever see in our lifetime . You have done proud to this Institution , the SCBA . It was a privilege to be with you . I wish you all lots of good luck for a better future .

Warmly ,

Dushyant Dave ,

President ,
