During his speech, Nawaz lauded the lawyers’ endeavours during the movement to restore judiciary, saying it would always be remembered. “The movement was not for restoration of a few judges.”

However, judiciary was restored but justice has yet to be provided, Nawaz added. He said 38,000 cases were pending for hearing in Supreme Court until November 2017.

“Now, a movement will be started to restore [provision of] justice.”

He said that in the past court has validated martial laws on the basis of the doctrine of necessity.

“We have to take strict decisions to take this country on the right path,” the PML-N leader said. “Not a single elected representative could complete his mandated tenure, whereas the dictators ruled the country for more than 30 years.”
