R Gandhi backs off from Madras HC judgeship names PIL

Madras high court (HC) senior advocate R Gandhi has asked to withdraw his petition to recall the controversial 12 names recommended for judgeships at the HC, reported the Times of India.

Advocates who had been boycotting work intermittently at the HC since December to protest against the judgeship recommendations, called off the boycott on Thursday after meeting the union law minister Kapil Sibal and the chief justice of India P Sathasivam, “on the latter’s assurance”. Gandhi had filed a memo for withdrawal of the petition on Friday “citing the same reason”, according to the TOI report.
