Lahore, May 15 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has urged the people to take to the streets for the restoration of sacked Pakistani judges.
Sharif claimed that he had only accepted the (Provisional Constitutional Order) PCO judges under compulsion from the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), and would not do so in future.
“PML-N had only joined the federal cabinet on the assurance by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari, that the sacked judges would be restored on May 12″, Daily Times quoted Sharif, as saying.
He said that the restoration of the sacked judiciary would have a positive impact on the ongoing energy crisis and price hike, adding that the Punjab government would support the lawyers’ long march, instead of blocking its path. (ANI)
