The two-day lawyers’ agitation that was evident on Wednesday with the Shivajinagar district and sessions court wearing a deserted look,fell flat on Thursday as more lawyers and litigants attended the court proceedings.

“While the exact number of lawyers who abstained from work is unavailable,on an average the two-day protest was successful and satisfactory,” said Vitthal Konde-Deshmukh,president of Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa.

Only urgent matters including daily remand applications and anticipatory bail applications were entertained by courts on protest days, he said.

After the protest on Day 2,the lawyers also submitted a memorandum to the district collector.

Shivraj Kadam,vice-president of the Pune Bar Association (PBA) said the protest was also successful in other courts — family court,charity commissioner,labour and industrial court,consumer court and the cooperatives court — in the city. “The PBA had appealed to all the lawyers to inform their clients about the protest so that they would not have to face any inconvenience,” said advocate Ashok Sankpal,president,PBA.

With the end of the protest,all the lawyers are expected to join work from Friday.
