CHENNAI: Advocates belonging to the Madras High Court Advocates Association boycotted courts and tribunals on Friday to highlight their demand that the Centre take steps to provide protection to Tamils in Karnataka.

They took out a procession and staged a demonstration on the High Court premises.

The Tamil Nadu Advocates Association, in a letter to the Prime Minister, sought his immediate intervention in the matter. The letter stated that the conduct of organisations in opposing the implementation of the Hogenakkal drinking water supply scheme was detrimental to the nation’s integrity. — Special Correspondent
