Does Boycott hurt ?

The Bahawalpur and Multan registries of the LHC have been closed till further order.Dawn has learnt that the decision has been taken, apparently, owing to the ongoing boycott of post-PCO judges by lawyers and shortage of judges. Before the Nov 3 emergency imposition, the LHC strength was 31 which has now been reduced to 21.The notification says the cases will move to the principal LHC seat in Lahore.—Correspondent Dawn News

Yes it does hurt...

Since those judges were professionally "sacked" by lawyers' boycott, so it was not a bad idea to close these two benches of LHC.
