Dushyant Dave was elected as head of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) in December 2019. In his brief letter, he said the tenure of the SCBA Executive Committee had already ended and it may not be possible to hold virtual elections as per schedule “due to reservations held by some lawyers.”
In his letter, he said,
“Following recent events, I feel that I have forfeited my right to continue as your Leader and so I hereby tender my resignation from the post of the President of the SCBA with immediate effect. Our term has already come to an end.”
The immediate resignation of the Senior Advocate was confirmed by Acting SCBA Secretary Rohit Panday.
Dave in his letter said,
“We sincerely decided to hold a virtual election to elect a new body. Now I find it may not be possible to hold them as per the schedule declared by the Election Committee due to reservations held by some of you. I understand their position and have no quarrel with it but to me, any further continuation as the President in these circumstances will be morally wrong.”
Mr Dave also has expressed his gratitude to all the members of the SCBA.
“I must place on record my deep gratitude to each of you for being part of this EC and contributing immensely during COVID-19, perhaps the greatest challenge to mankind we will ever see in our lifetime. You have done proud of this Institution, the SCBA. It was a privilege to be with you. I wish you all lots of good luck for a better future.”
With reference to the recent farm Bills, Mr Dave had represented a few Farmers’ Union before the Supreme Court, in case of the constitutional validity of the Farm Bills.
