Ex-AGs, Udaya Holla, other Bangalore advocates go on hunger strike

The lawyers protesting against alleged 'stepmotherly' treatment of the Karnataka high court bench, and appointments to it, include "Advocates Generals of the state BV Acharya, Ravivarma Kumar, Udaya Holla and Ashok Haranahalli, co-chairman of Bar Council of India Y R Sadashiva Reddy, President of Advocates Association of Bengaluru A P Ranganath, Additional Advocate Generals of the state AG Shivanna and A S Ponnanna".

Union minister for statistics and programme implementation D V Sadananda Gowda went to the spot along with former Karnataka law minister S Suresh Kumar.

Admitting that it's a regrettable situation, Gowda, a former Union law minister, requested the advocates to withdraw their agitation while assuring them that he would do everything possible with regard to the eight appointment recommendations pending before the central government.

Later, chief minister Siddaramaiah, accompanied by state law minister T B Jayachandra, too landed there. While expressing solidarity with the advocates' fraternity, he assured them he would take up the issue with the Prime Minister.
