NAROWAL/LAHORE - PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif on Monday vowed not to leave the lawyers alone at this critical juncture and said he would not compromise on principles. Addressing a big public rally in Narowal, Nawaz asked the nation to stand against injustice, poverty and starvation. He said only an independent judiciary could steer Pakistan out of the prevailing crises and problems. He said the people have given their decision against the Supreme Court's verdict regarding their disqualification. Spirit of former dictator Pervez Musharraf has been infused into Asif Ali Zardari, he said, adding that Zardari had ambushed mandate of people of Punjab by imposing Governor Rule. But, he added, the people of Punjab would not allow his dream to be translated into reality. People of Punjab will emerge victorious and President Zardari will face a crushing defeat, he announced. Shahbaz Sharif had won majority vote in Punjab earlier and still he was enjoying majority therein, he added. Nawaz said it is the best time for the nation for standing up to save Pakistan. No one can cast an evil eye on Pakistan if we are united. He made it clear that the PML-N still had a clear majority in Punjab due to which the dream of forming PPP government would not become a reality. He said masses are with us for changing the fate of the country and for bringing prosperity to the nation. The political defeat is now the destiny of PPP after imposition of governor rule in Punjab. "Our problems could be solved through an independent judiciary only," he said. Pakistan was moving ahead into a dark era and the sincere people should come forward for wiping out injustice, he said. He said that he would participate in the 'long march' and sit-in and it would be continued till the achievement of the goal. "I hope the destiny would be in your feet in upcoming months," he said. The country was beset with several problems, which led him to enter an agreement with Zardari, he said. Nawaz Sharif said that Zardari shouldn't take ahead the dictatorship and added if he doesn't want to do anymore, then let him only restore the judges and the PML-N would not put any stumbling block for his government till completion of five years term. He said that he was not against reconciliation but democratic revolution could set the country to a direction, for which, the rallies and processions should be peaceful. Zardari was in haste for rushing to the mid-term elections, he said, adding he had no personal grudge against him. He said the judges were under pressure by Zardari and only after a democratic revolution, Pakistan would be saved. He said if the Governor Rule ends and the judges are restored, then an understanding could be arrived at. Nawaz advised the prime minister to tell the truth to the nation through the parliament and said that except MQM leader Altaf Hussain and Zardari, no one supported the court's decision. The PML-N leader said he has come out with the case of 160 million people and advised the President Asif Zardari to restore his image by reinstating Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as the chief justice of Pakistan. For the first time in national history, Nawaz said, the Apex Court has disqualified an elected government but the masses have also announced their verdicts in streets and roads. He said the soul of Benazir Bhutto, would also take part in long march. He made it clear that no worker of his party was involved in vandalising memorial of the late Benazir Bhutto in Rawalpindi. After his arrival in Narowal, he stayed at the residence of PML-N central leader and MNA Ch Ehsan Iqbal. Our Monitoring Desk adds: Nawaz further said that PPP will not succeed in its bid to form government in Punjab, as Shahbaz Sharif is still enjoying the majority in the Provincial Assembly. He said that PPP has to face a shameful defeat when the Governor Rule in Punjab would be lifted. Zardari embraced the judges who were appointed by Pervez Musharraf and who allowed an army general to contest presidential election with his uniform. He said, "These judges are now barring a two-time former premier to run in election". He said his struggle was not for any personal gain but to bring a change in society and independent judiciary in the country. "These rulers want to build a society deprived of justice and jobs. I need your support to change the fate of Pakistan", he said. Staff Reporter from Lahore adds: The PML-N and Jamaat-i-Islami have agreed to constitute a joint committee for formulating a strategy to make the lawyers long march and sit-in a success and result-oriented. The decision was made in a meeting of the PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif with JI Ameer Qazi Hussain Ahmed here at Mansoora on Monday. The PML-N Quaid visited JI's headquarters after 17 years as part of his campaign to muster support of various circles for his drive to ensure support for lawyers long march, reinstatement of deposed judges and President Zardari's actions. Nawaz Sharif will meet leadership of other Opposition parties in Islamabad on March 4 in an effort to get maximum support. In the joint committee, Senator-elect Pervaiz Rashid and MNA Kh Saad Rafiq will be representing the PML-N while Syed Munawar Hassan, Liaquat Baloch and Dr Farid Piracha will represent JI. The committee is meeting late in the night to discuss various ways and means of countering the govt's steps like arrests of leaders and placing of containers on roads for blocking them toreach Islamabad. Talking to newsmen after the meeting, Nawaz Sharif said that the PML-N did not believe in reconciliation through any backdoor channel, a reference to Federal Information Minister Sherry Rehman's statement. He said that the PML-N wanted reversal of all Musharraf-era policies and reinstatement of deposed judges including Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. Referring to the Presidential order regarding establishment of mobile courts, he alleged that it was aimed at frightening and preventing people from joining the long march. He said that promulgation of the ordinance at the time when Assembly was in session showed malafide intention on the part of the President. He alleged that it was not aimed at providing justice to the poor but to harass the opponents. He said that the Ordinance would fail to stop public from joining the long march. Criticising President Asif Ali Zardari, he said that the PPP Co-Chairman deceived the nation and deprived it of the happiness it had felt on Feb 18 polls results. Nawaz said that cunningness would prove dangerous for Asif Zardari and it would soon backfire. He said that Asif Zardari was being haunted by Musharraf's ghost as the former Army ruler's policies were still being implemented. Qazi Husain said they had consulted each other on future line of action and were working together for launching a mass movement. He blamed NRO responsible for the present Constitutional crisis as the law had paved the way for brining in power an 'illegal govt'.
