Judge MR Shah remarked: âHow can lawyers request the change of the list of qualified single judges? No bar association can put pressure on the Chief Justice to change the list. The Chief Justice is the master of the list.
âMr. Lawyer, you make sure that the lawyers and the bar cannot force changes to the list. It is not for you to tell the Chief Justice to change the list, âhe added.
