Kullu: The government of India should give second thought to the proposed Foreign Education Provider Bill and National Commission for Higher Education and Research Bill before putting these in the Parliament. This was stated by Naresh Kumar Sood, the newly-elected chairman of Himachal Pradesh Bar Council while addressing media persons at Dhalpur. He said the government should take the Bar Council of India into confidence and take serious note on suggestions of the Bar Council.
He alleged that the Bill would hamper powers of the Bar Council, besides imposing foreign education policies in India. Earlier, Naresh was given warm welcome by the District Bar Association here on his arrival from Shimla after winning the Himachal Pradesh Bar Council elections. Amar Singh, president of the District Bar Association, said that Sood was the first advocate from Kullu who was elected chairman of the State Bar Council. Sood assured the practicing lawyers of the state that he would try his best to solve the problems and difficulties being faced by the community at large in the state.
