Not a single lawyer appeared in any court, bring the entire judicial work to a grinding halt and created great trouble for the litigants who were turned up to attend the courts in respect of their cases from far-flung areas of the district. It is to be noted that it has become a common practice that the lawyers strikes and some many other factors have been adding to the miseries the litigants and have badly hindered the process of justice dispensation.
