Manipur Lawyers Protest ‘Outsider’ Advocate General

The High Court Bar Association of Manipur on Tuesday staged a protest against a government proposal to appoint a lawyer from Andhra Pradesh as the new Advocate General.

The lawyers submitted a memorandum urging Chief Minister N. Biren Singh to pick an Advocate General from among local lawyers. K. Binoykumar, President of the Bar Association, said: “Being a non-local with no knowledge of the state’s language, the proposed AG shall not be able to discharge his duties properly.”

He added: “This is for the first time in Manipur that the government is planning to appoint a non-local to this post. We are seeking support from all civil society organisations on this issue.”
