The abrupt culmination of the Long March without much ado, and without the much-trumpeted sit-in, was a big disappointment for many. It was a foregone conclusion that the Long March alone would not yield any results and the judges would not be restored unless it was followed by a Khatmandu style long and persistent sit-in (dharna). The likes of flamboyant Ali Ahmed Kurd and some others had been crying hoarse for days before the event that they will stage a never ending sit-in in front of the Parliament, and if the need be, the Army House for as long as required till the judges were restored. Some political parties, finding the God sent opportunity had jumped on the lawyers' bandwagon to reap their own harvest. However, even before the day had dawned, Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan was trying his best to justify the wrapping up of the show with the excuse that the poor lawyers had no resources to sustain the sit-in. My dear Barrister When did you come to know of the penury state of the SCBA funds? On the night of the Long March? -COL (Retd) RIAZ JAFRI, Rawalpindi, via e-mail, June 17.
