Belagavi: The government has approved the establishment of the Karnataka State Consumer Dispute Redress Commission in Belagavi, bowing to the request of the belagavi Bar Association which organized a dharna for four days to achieve this.
The Undersecretary of Government issued the order on Friday evening, following the instructions of Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai. The ordinance mentions that the procedure for the creation of the commission will be launched in Belagavi with the sanction of the required positions.
MP for Belagavi (south), Abhay Patil spoke to Bommai, who is in Delhi, on Friday morning and heard the news.
After that, Bommai instructed the relevant department to issue an approval letter for the commission.
MPs Patil and Anil Benake delivered the sanction letter to the protesting lawyers in the evening.
Their request having been granted, the lawyers withdrew the indefinite agitation led by the President of the Bar Prabhu Yatnatti. The hustle and bustle quickly turned into a party space.
The lawyers’ protest had won the support of different political leaders, including those of the BJP and the Congressand the agitation grew stronger day by day.
The lawyers had questioned the negligence of the Minister of Forests Umesh Katti for the commission going to Kalaburagi. He was sanctioned by Belagavi two and a half years ago. The lawyers had boycotted the court proceedings for four days.
