Bhopal:  Citing recent attacks on lawyers and demanding immediate implementation of Advocate Protection Act and 33 other demands, nearly 100 people marched lying stretched on the ground to the state capital from Udaypura Tehsil, Raisen District which is 175 kilometres from Bhopal, on Monday. The group was welcomed by the District Bar Association who later joined them in their demonstration.
“If the Shivraj Singh Chouhan led government fails to agree with our demands, we will go on an indefinite hunger strike. We plan to meet the other administrative officers along with the CM during this march,” Sunil Dixit, Advocate and leader of the protest said.

“This is an important act since it deals with the security issues of the lawyers. We will try in every possible way and support this group for the implementation of this act,” Vice President of District Bar Association, Sapna Chawdhury said.
President of the District Bar Association Rajesh Vyas, Secretary PC Kothari, Ravi Pandit, UP Shukla and Mehboob Ansari are among the few who welcomed the group.
The demonstrators who marched lying down on the ground also included farmers, women and labourers from Raisen District.
“In December 2017, we have submitted a memorandum to the President, Prime Minister, Governor and Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh in this regards,” Dixit added.
The rally commenced on January 01, 2018 and reached the Bhopal District Bar Association office located at the District Court premises on Monday. While routing for Vallabh Bhavan, the rally was stopped by the police officials, who later cleared their way. The rally will conclude at Gufa Mandir in Bhopal.
