JAMMU, Apr 16: Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association Jammu has decided to resume work but will continue agitation with various ways and means.
The decision to resume work was taken in the meeting of general house held under the presidentship of Senior Advocate B S Slathia.
The general house decided that work shall be resumed temporarily by the lawyers in all the courts in due deference of the notice dated 13-04-2018 issued by the Supreme Court and also the request made by the Bar Council of India and Registrar General of the High Court of J&K.
However, it was declared that the agitation would be intensified in furtherance of general house resolution dated 04-04-2018 and with the latest mandate of the civil society group on 15-04-2018, with new ways and means for which an Action Committee would be constituted.
