YLA against polarization of Bar

Young Lawyers Association (YLA), district Rajouri, today said that it is against the polarization of bar which is the result of dictatorial attitude of the Bar Association Rajouri.

The issue evolved few days back when all the Young Lawyers Association unanimously constituted its executive body in order to uphold and raise the genuine grievances faced by the advocates, and appointed Advocate Ahsan Mirza as the president and advocate Shoket Ali as general secretary.

Addressing a press conference, president YLA, Ahsan Mirza said it is not the first time when this body has been constituted but it is unfortunate that the Bar Association has criticized such move by the young advocates.

He further said that the Bar Association has always remained as the source of inspiration and has always provided patronage to the young advocates, but it is ironical that this time some persons with disguised intentions have made it an issue. Inspite of encouraging the youth who are full of zeal and energy, they are polarizing the advocates and are showing their personal and vested intentions to sit on the helm of affair and are halting the very fundamental of democracy in which people's voice is treated as the voice of God, he added.

Lambasting the dictatorial attitude of the Bar Association, general secretary YLA, Shoket Ali quoted that dissolving and constituting the bodies of YLA is out from the discretion and jurisdiction of the Bar Association.

He said they can guide us, can act our mentors, can suggest us to hold the programmes for the welfare of Bar but cannot dissolve the body because of the sole reason that YLA has its own constitution and code of conduct.

Others present in the press conference were Advocates Waqar Salaria, Deepak Thusso, Javid Mirza, Mustaq Choudhary, Shafiq Choudhary, Sahil Gupta and many others.
