farhan khan | 10 years ago | Reply The on going antipathetic relation between the PPP government and the Judiciary , manifests that the ill-will between them is still on the fire and probably the retrospective delaying tactics of President Asif Ali Zardari in the restoration of the dysfunctional judges would compel him to pay through the nose,nevertheless,he may not be ever ready to cough it off.
