MULTAN - The 'promotion row has triggered a second resignation from the subordinate courts in Punjab; this time in Multan, as a senior civil judge Muhammad Kalim Khan resigned here on Wednesday. This resignation also sparked a serious judicial crisis in Multan district courts as all civil judges went on strike while the district bar association members announced to boycott the courts on Thursday (today). The sources concerned said talks between the district and sessions judge and civil judges to withdraw resignation and resume court work also failed, and the civil judges refused to work. Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif had issued a notification last week for the promotions of lower courts judges. However, when civil judge Layyah Javed Iqbal protested against being neglected in promotion process and resigned on Tuesday, senior civil judge Multan Muhammad Kalim Khan also tendered resignation to express solidarity with Javed. My step is intended to save judiciary and system. I want to prevent my other colleagues from this kind of injustice, observed civil judge Kalim Khan while talking to the journalists.
