Ludhiana: District Bar Association (DBA), Ludhiana will observe complete strike on August 17, as protest against GLADA (Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority) for holding public auction of open land, situated on rear side of court premises.
A resolution to this effect was passed by Executive Committee of District Bar Association in the meeting. President Vijay B Verma and Vice President Vipin Saggar told that DBA, Ludhiana has already filed civil suit for declaration and permanent injunction against GLADA and Punjab, which is pending in the court of Civil Judge Junior Division Komple Dhanjal. On August 9, 2016 the court directed to all parties of the case to maintain status quo and are not entitled to raise any construction or any type of change on the disputed land.

The GLADA has also fixed public auction of said disputed land on August 21, 2016. Due to above reasons, lawyers decided to observe strike on August 17.
