A group of lawyers has come out in support of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s controversial remark on judiciary in which she had said the court judgments could be bought and which was followed by a contempt petition against her in the Calcutta High Court.
The lawyers, under the banner of All India Legal Aid Forum, said her comment on the judiciary was not amounting to the contempt of court. Joydeep Mukherjee, the general secretary of the group and also the secretary of All India Bar Association, said there are a lot of example about the corruption in the judiciary.
“It would have been better if Mamata Banerjee would have brought forward some facts of corruption, if any, to the knowledge of the concerned authorities,” stated the press release issued by the group.
Mukherjee, meanwhile, said some lawyers would appear in the proceedings of the High Court in the contempt case in support of the chief minister.
