The PPP stalwarts including MNA Farzana Raja often argue on T.V. channels that PPP has already reinstated most of the deposed judges and only a few are left who can also join if ready to take a fresh oath. In fact the deposed judges have been reappointed and not reinstated albeit with a promise to keep their seniority intact which is a moot point. However when it comes to the case of deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry it is said that there can be only one Chief Justice i.e., Abdul Hameed Dogar and Justice Chaudhry would have to serve under Justice Dogar if he chooses to join as others have done. This is a blatant bit of double standards i.e. only Justice Chaudhry's seniority would not be preserved even if he opts to join in. Mr. Chaudhry is, in fact, simply not amenable to the idea of taking a fresh oath to thereby compromise his position of having denounced Nov 3, 2007 action with which General Musharraf had deposed the apex court judges. With a stroke of pen, he had appointed new judges to suit his person so as to qualify him for his election as President while in uniform. The PPP cannot convince the people of its fair dealing no matter how hard its ministers try to hoodwink the people. Their double standards and repeated breaking of the promise to reinstate the deposed judges to Nov. 2, 2007 position is being condemned by all. -DR M. YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, via e-mail, January 24.
