A petition filed in the Supreme Court has stated that the government has remained a mute spectator to the hardships faced by lawyers during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Filed by Advocate-on-Record Abhinav Ramkrishna, the plea has urged the Court to issue directions so that the government, in tandem with state bar councils, formulates a uniform welfare scheme for all lawyers affected by the lockdown.
The petitioner points out how lawyers are finding it difficult to sustain themselves in the wake of closure of courts.
