“The lawyers in Muzaffarnagar, Shamli, Bijnor, Meerut, Baghpat and Ghaziabad are observing one day strike against the Advocates (Amendment) Bill, 2017 which bars advocates from holding agitation and makes them liable to compensate litigants if they go on strike,” Surender Malik, Secretary, District Court Bar Association said.

The Bar Council of India (BCI), the apex body of advocates, had yesterday given a call for strike across the country, saying the Bill was against their interests.
