Court Bar Association president Pravin Parekh said.  It is unbecoming of a Chief Minister to make this sort of unsubstantiated allegation against a Constitutional authority. She shouldnalt39t have done so,’BJP leader Balbir Punj said.

CPI( M) leader Mohammed Salim hit out at Banerjee, saying the Chief Minister took up the issue inside the Assembly, when ‘she is at the receiving end.”… What about the cases she has won in court? Who had paid the judges then? Mamata? This shows the absurdity of the allegation. I mean, one expects a mature reaction… I am very very disturbed,’eminent lawyer Soli Sorabji said.

Retired Justice Santosh Hegde, who was once a member of the now disbanded Team Anna, said the Chief Minister should have been more prudent.

‘I must confess that Ialt39m appalled at hearing this. The Chief Minister of a state under the Constitution of India is a constitutional functionary, the head of the executive. And one institution passing these kinds of comments about another co- equal institution can only be called regrettable and if this is the tone and tenor of Indian democracy then I think our constitution is in serious peril. I donalt39t think I can put it in stronger words,’said Supreme Court advocate and former Solicitor General Harish Salve.
