Ashok Arora Called for Removal of Dave, SCBA Removes Arora

The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) suspended its Secretary, Ashok Arora, with immediate effect after the Executive Committee (EC) took this decision in a meeting summoned today. Rohit Pandey, the Assistant Secretary, will take over the duties and responsibilities of the Secretary.

On May 7, 2020, Ashok Arora spread a message among the Supreme Court Bar Association members; to remove Supreme Court Bar Association, President, Dushyant Dave, from his post. The reason being, the passing of a Resolution criticizing the public remarks made by Justice Arun Mishra in praise of PM Narendra Modi. Moreover, Arora claimed that Dave is using the office of Supreme Court Bar Association for political purposes; thereby calling for his removal from the primary membership of the Bar Association for working against the interest of the Bar.

Thus, this “Extraordinary General Meeting” also stands cancelled. This decision was passed by the Executive Committee with a majority, where the President refrained from voting. Additionally, the association constituted a 3-member Committee to look into the claims against Ashok Arora.

However, Arora again sent out a message to members of the Bar accusing the Executive Committee of intimidating him on different occasions. Further asserting that Dave’s conduct has lowered the reputation of the Bar. “There is documentary evidence to show that the President; and his men/women in the EC intimidated me from time to time; for which I reserve my right to initiate legal action. They suspended me on vague and baseless allegation. In fact, their undemocratic action damaged the reputation of this prestigious Bar”, said Arora in his message.
