Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif arrived here late Tuesday night. Mian Nawaz Sharif left for Dubai to have final round of talks with Pakistan People's Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on the issue of restoration of judges.

Earlier, our Lahore reporter adds: Nawaz left amid reports of differences between the Pakistan People's Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz on reinstatement of judges.

Talks between the two parties remained inconclusive, as the coalition partners continued to differ whether to move a resolution in the National Assembly for reinstating the judges or make it part of a constitutional package, the sources in the PML-N told Business Recorder. Talking to reporters before his departure to Dubai, Nawaz said some circles were hatching conspiracies against the coalition government.

Nawaz said that he wanted resolution of the country's internal matters within Pakistan and was going to Dubai with this intention and would talk with Asif Ali Zardari in this regard. He said two rounds of talks were held between the PPP and PML-N in Dubai. 'Shahbaz Sharif is already in Dubai and he is proceeding there to talk with Asif Zardari', he added. He said he feels that his presence in Dubai is necessary and he is proceeding there with good intention.

Nawaz further said that under Murree Declaration, it is provided that reinstatement of judges will be made within 30 days which is expiring on April 30 and the restoration will be made through a resolution. He said he is proceeding to Dubai to ensure implementation of the resolution.

To a question, Nawaz said they wanted to keep the coalition government intact but some forces do not want to keep the democracy flourish. "We do not want to bow down against oppression. We want to live with dignity and if the present opportunity is lost we will not get it again."

It may be mentioned that Asif Zardari in an interview indicated that deposed judges of superior courts would be restored through Constitutional package, and the process may take two weeks for completion. He said that a comprehensive package along with a resolution and executive order would be put before the parliament for threadbare discussion and approval. He said, the timeframe for the restoration of judges was announced with good intention but it was not a divine degree.
