“District Legal Services Authority is there to provide free legal help to citizens, who are are unable to afford legal services. What Kayda Clinic is offering is totally against the rule of law. People should stay away from believing it,” added Shobhna Chapiya.
Advocate Shabnam A Vandeliwala from Surat said, “People offering legal in the name of Kayda Clinic don’t belong to any group of advocates. Those who are not advocate, if they try to provide legal aid to people, then it is deterimental for the society.”
Nation is based on rule of law and if activity like Kayda Clinic is not stopped, it can pose a threat to judicial system and democratic step-up in the country.
