Expressing his views regarding political situation, the CM lamented that 'jiala judges were appointed in a large number before independence of judiciary, and this process was tantamount to sabotage the judicial system and the Charter of Democracy. He added that the parliamentary group of Muslim League not only upheld the CoD by deciding not to accept ministries, but had written a new chapter in the history of politics. He said some elements were criticising the stance of consultation with judiciary and army, but they should answer to this fact that if army could help the civil administration in floods, earthquakes and maintenance of law and order then why consultation could not be made with it on a biggest challenge being confronted by the country. 'His proposal is not against democracy.
