Bantwal, Jun 29: District legal forum has urged the state government to start a fund of Rs 50 crore for lawyer’s community who are facing severe hardship due to COVID lockdown and relieve them from financial difficulties. An appeal in this regard was sent to the chief minister through Bantwal tahsildar on Monday.

Forum district president S P Changappa also stated that the courts were not conducting operations for the last three months due to lockdown. The lawyers claimed that along with the petitioners, the lawyers who depend on their profession were also facing hardships. Advocates are like dead while alive. The government should look into it, he urged.

Banks should release loans on minimum interest rates, the honorarium paid to young lawyers should be raised, mandatory COVID tests should be conducted on prisoners in judicial custody and their family members should be allowed to visit them, he proposed.

Forum president Umesh Kumar Y, chief secretary Udaneshwara B, convener secretary Veerendra M Siddakatte, Bantwal unit president Suresh Poojary, secretary Ravindra Kukkaje, joint secretary Tulasidas, Mohan Kadeshwalya, executive committee member B V Shenoy and others were present.
