The agitation will be at Jantar Mantar in Delhi Aug 26.
"Bar associations in all 22 districts of western Uttar Pradesh have called for a boycott of courts, leading to a complete halt in court proceedings. We are determined not to restore work in the courts till we are assured that a high court bench will be set up in western Uttar Pradesh," said Rakesh Tyagi Kakra, president of Ghaziabad Bar Association.
Kakra said that the union law minister has sought a proposal from the Uttar Pradesh government for the high court bench.
"Allahabad-based lawyers and other vested interests have been creating snags in establishing the bench," Kakra added.
The lawyers say that even small states have a high court bench, but not western Uttar Pradesh.
