Advocate moves High Court against recommendations of judges names

LUCKNOW || An advocate Asok Pande on Monday filed a writ petition in the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court seeking reconsideration over the name of recommendations made by the Allahabad High Court Collegium for High Court Judges.

courtsPande’s primary allegation is that the High Court collegiums has given undue preference to persons who are working as State counsel, claiming that they are not advocates in the true sense of the word, as defined in the Advocates Act.

He has also said that majority of the recommendations are from the relatives of Judges, which shows a definite preference being given to them. Saying that the recommendations are improper, Pande has said that he deserves more than many of them to be chosen as the Judge of the High Court, hence the recommendations shall be cancelled and his name shall be recommended.
