We are very happy to note that our case was heard the whole day on the Thursday the 20th of Febraury, by our Honb"le Judges Sri.Dave and Kirti singh. After adjourning the first case to 24 th Feb our case was taken up at 10 55 am, there were some initial hickups but the judges, ourselves and the respondents were eager to start the case, so it started smoothly and our Senior Advocate Sri.Giri, accompanies by Sri V.Parthiban from Chennai, Sri Dayan Krishnan and Gautham Narayan from Delhi, with some juniors to help our advocates, started the argument. There was no interference from either from Respondents' Advocate Sri.Andhi Arjuna representing Dua Associates,Jaideep Gupta or from the Governments side represented by Adv.Sri.Sunita Rao.There were also other advocate representing for the petitioners Sri Gonsalves Sr.Adv. Our Argument went on till 1 pm in the morning and upto 4 pm in the evening without any interruption. The judges noted all the important points and in between asked some clarifications. We are happy and satisfied with our presentation and it would continue on the 26th of Feb also. and the respodents will be giving their point of view and after that we should counter their contention and the case will come to a close.
We should wait for the judgement and it may take a month or so.
Friends the longest struggle taken to this level by a non political Association will come in to the History that too by the pensioners and our victory will be a land mark judgement and will guide all the VRS optees under Golden Hand shake.
Our duty is to Pray the Almighty for the favorable judgement.
