The strike of Rajasthan lawyers would end after judges in Rajasthan High Court said at midnight yesterday that the contentious judicial service exam would be scrapped, reported CNN-IBN this morning, citing the principal private secretary to the Chief Justice who said he had received notice in writing from the advocates that they would resume work tomorrow.

The judges’ last-minute decision would be a U-turn as only yesterday the High Court had issued notices on a petition to declare the strike illegal as the striking advocates themselves had threatened embarking on a mahapadaav (mass siege) of the Jaipur and Jodhpur high court benches from tomorrow (23 September), according to the Times of India.

The lawyers had been striking for almost a month now, having protested the exam for the post of additional district judge.
