Faisalabad, Mar 8 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif has demanded that the government should immediately register an FIR in connection with the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and arrest the accused in the case.

Addressing a public meeting at the Iqbal Park here, he said despite the passage of more than one year, the ruling party has registered no FIR.

After the end of the lawyers long march, he said, the PML-N would stage rallies for the arrest of Benazir Bhuttos killers.

He denied the involvement of PML-N workers in vandalising the memorial of Benazir Bhutto, and asked the PPP workers to take out a rally along with him for unearthing the assassins of Benazir Bhutto.

Sharif called upon workers of all political parties, especially the PPP, to participate in the long march, The News reported.

He said the PML-N fully supported the just cause of lawyers for the restoration of the deposed judges and Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

He said political workers could play a decisive role at this critical juncture to bring true and lasting democracy in the country.

The PML-N leader said that he had signed an agreement with slain PPP chairperson Benazir Bhutto for the restoration of democracy and all the deposed judges, and that Benazir had announced at her public meetings in Karachi and Rawalpindi that she herself would hoist the Pakistani flag at the residence of the deposed chief justice.

Before assuming power, he said, President Asif Ali Zardari also signed the agreement on March 9 at Murree and then on August 5 in Dubai and on August 7 in London, pledging that both the PPP and PML-N leaders would honour the agreements and restore the deposed judges within 24 hours.

He said the PML-N was still sticking to the agreements, President Zardari had betrayed them. Nawaz Sharif is made in Pakistan who would live and die for Pakistan, he said.

If President Zardari announced the restoration of all the judges, he said, he would not claim anything more from him during the remaining tenure of four years. (ANI)
