elders committee: Remove Posters, Banners From Court By Jan 1: Elders’ Committee | Kanpur News

Kanpur: The Elders’ committee, on Thursday, issued directions to the contestants of the annual general election to ensure the removal of posters and banners from the court premises by January 1, 2022.
The committee stated that on failing to do the same a fine of Rs 2,000 will be imposed on the candidate and his candidature would also be rejected. Besides, his name would be sent to the Bar Council of UP for disciplinary action. A copy of the directives has been sent to the district magistrate and Police commissioner.
Kanpur Bar Association’s annual general election, which was held on December 17, was cancelled by the committee following chaos and unruly scene during voting. The contestants and their followers had not only rigged the booth but also pulled the ballot papers from the hands of voters and made signs in front of their candidates. The elders’ committee had later frozen the voting about half an hour before the stipulated time and later cancelled the voting. An advocate was shot in Kanpur court premises during the voting.
The elders’ committee had convened a meeting a few days ago with former presidents of KBA and it was decided to impose strict rules on candidates and their supporters. Ved Prakash Arya, a member of the Elders’ committee stated all contestants had been asked to neither raise their camp poster and banner on the day of voting nor offer lunch or ‘langar’. The committee would take strict action against those who violate the norms, he added.
