Lawyers in Gujarat have decided to join the two-day nation-wide strike from tomorrow, called by Bar Council of India (BCI) against the government’s Higher Education and Research (HER) Bill aimed at usurping its control over the legal education.
During agitation in major cities like Ahmedabad, Rajkot and Surat, lawyers burnt the copies of Higher Education and Research Bill, 2011 as a mark of protest. They also shouted slogans against the Union government.
