KARACHI, Jan 16: The deposed Supreme Court judge, Justice Rana Bhagwandas, has said he is ready to play his due role in the ongoing struggle for the independence of the judiciary, the rule of law, supremacy of the constitution and restoration of democracy in the country.

He was talking to a delegation of lawyers who called on him at his residence here on Wednesday.

He urged politicians and civil society organisations to join hands with lawyers in their valiant struggle.
