Islamabad, Feb 2: Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif has pledged that once he is back in power he will reinstate former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and his colleagues.

''We will observe 'Youm-e-Ahed' on February 6 and all PML-N candidates will be called to Lahore to take a pledge that on becoming members of parliament their first priority would be the restoration of all 60 sacked judges,'' the News quoted the former prime minister as saying. Mr Sharif was adressing a large number of lawyers of the Lahore High Court Bar Association at the Rawalpindi bench yesterday.

Calling upon the party leaders to devote themselves for the cause, he said, ''It is very shameful for us that a dictator in Pakistan says that the Pakistani nation is not liable for real democracy and basic human rights cannot be given to them.''
