Pro-AL, pro-BNP lawyers stage demo, counter-demo

Pro-Awami League lawyers today staged demonstration at the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) premises protesting what they said the pro-BNP and pro-Jamaat lawyers were doing politics over Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha’s leave.

Meanwhile, pro-BNP lawyers also staged demonstration there protesting what they said “confinement of the chief justice”.

CJ has been on a month's leave since October 3 on health ground.

Ruling Awami League-backed lawyers held a rally and formed a human chain under the banner of Bangabandhu Awami Ainjibi Parishad in front of the SCBA office building.

They alleged that the pro-BNP and pro-Jamaat lawyers were doing politics over the CJ's leave and said pro-Jamaat lawyers will not be allowed to do politics at the SC premises over the issue.                    

Meanwhile, SCBA, which is currently dominated by pro-BNP lawyers, led by its President Zainul Abedin and Secretary AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon, staged demonstration and held a meeting in front of the office of SCBA president.

They claimed that the CJ was sent on a forced leave and said they will continue their agitation until Justice SK Sinha returns to the SC.
