Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar had offered PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif scrapping of the case regarding his disqualification on showing flexibility over judges issue. In an interview with a private TV channel on Monday, Shahbaz said that PML-N will not accept judges who flourished under a dictator's umbrella. He threatened to launch a public struggle if he was disqualified. To a question about his resent meeting with President Asif Ali Zardari, he said, 'both the PPP and PML-N have struggled and paid a lot for democracy in the country and I have asked him (Zardari) to brush off misunderstandings and follow the Charter of Democracy(CoD) to bring the country on track'. He further said that rift between the two leading parties could have been avoided if any of the signed agreements were honoured. Commenting on 17th Amendment and Presidential powers, Shahbaz said that President Zardari had pledged on these two issues but things had not yet been done as promised. He said that he was ready to call on President Zardari again in a greater national interest. He said that deadlock like situation was existing between the PPP and PML-N, 'but I am hopeful to take things in an optimistic manner'. He said that public mobilisation was not aimed at destabilizing the country, rather it was just to make the leaders realise and bring them on track. He said that his party would embrace President Zardari in case of fulfilling his commitments. He said that the PPP should come up with its alternate options if it was not willing to reinstate deposed CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry who was a symbol of independent judiciary. Shahbaz proposed three steps the PPP should do to defuse the tension between the two major parties. First of all, establish a free and independent judiciary, a Parliamentary Committee to be set up and formulate a procedure of judges appointment and lastly end of 17th Amendment, he added. To a question, Shahbaz said, 'In my view, Army Chief Ashfaq Pervaiz Kiyani is a pro-democratic person which is good sign for democracy'. He further said that even if the democratic system was derailed, politicians only would be held responsible for the situation. Agencies add: Shahbaz said PPP and PML-N are working in collaboration but some elements are trying to end democratic government by sowing discord between the federal and provincial governments. Talking to media and addressing the public on his arrival in Chiniot on Monday, the Chief Minister said his government was striving hard to serve the people.

The CM granted district status to Chiniot and announced Rs5 billion development package for it. He said his govt was working on development and welfare projects to benefit the people. It is the PML-N that has fulfilled the old demand of granting district status to Chiniot, he added. The Punjab Chief Minister directed the officials to serve people as their servants.
