PML-N leader says relations with Zardari won't improve even after Chaudhry's reappointment
Lahore, Mar. 17 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif has claimed that his party's relations with President Asif Ali Zardari will not improve despite the government's decision of reinstating sacked chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry.
The Daily Times quoted Asif, as saying that the Zardari government should have made the decision before March 16.
On Monday, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had congratulated the whole nation over the reinstatement of the deposed judges, and called off the lawyer's Long March.
Addressing a charged "Long March" rally in Gujranwala, Sharif termed the restoration of deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry as a big success and a prelude to positive change in Pakistan.
Earlier, the PML-N chief had opened the door for reconciliation with Zardari, by saying that he was ready to give Zardari "the next five years if he delivers on his pledges".
"There is no need for back channel diplomacy or private and secret dialogue. I have not slammed my doors on dialogue. If Zardari showed sincerity, I am ready to give him another five years (after his tenure expires)," he had said. (ANI)
