In support of their demands, the advocates organised a protest march to Raj Bhawan on Tuesday. Under the banner of Bar Council of India and Bar Association of Uttarakhand, the advocates in a large number assembled at Vidhi Bhawa situated in the district collectorate from where they headed towards Raj Bhawan. The police, however, stopped them near Kanak Chowk, leaving them angry. They were seen having heated exchanges with the police personnel. The advocates then handed over a memorandum addressed to the President and the Prime Minister through the office of the additional district magistrate (ADM) Arvind Pandey.
The president of the Bar association Manmohan Kandwal said that the government should provide a stipend for Rs 10,000 per month to the new advocates, give them the benefit of pension and appoint senior advocates in the state government undertakings and commissions instead of the retired judges.
