The agitating lawyers demand setting up of a high court bench any of the western UP cities, including Meerut, Agra or Saharnpur, saying even the Lahore High Court is closer to these cities than the state's main high court at Allahabad.
They said it would be better to put some of the NCR districts of West UP under the Delhi High Court's jurisdiction.
"That's why we staged the protest at his Ghziabad residence and symbolically locked its gate," said Pandit, ruing that the MP was not at his residence at the time of protest.
The protestors raised slogans against Singh and handed over a memorandum an official at his home, he said.
The Lucknow bench of the high court caters to just eight districts around the state capital, he said, adding a high court bench anywhere in the western UP would serve the litigants from at least 22 districts.
UP's former home minister Baleshwer Tyagi in the Kalyan Singh-led BJP government, said the western UP people gave a landslide victory to the BJP in Centre and the state and the two governments must heed to the masses.
If the demand for a high court bench in western UP is not met in time, it may trigger a movement leading to another bifurcation of the state, he warned.
