Pervez Musharraf declares alliance of 23 parties for 2018 polls

Pervez Musharraf declares alliance of 23 parties for 2018 polls

Pervez Musharraf on Sunday denied reports as ludicrous that he was considering taking the leadership reigns of the Mutahidda Quami Movement (MQM-P) or the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP). "MQM-Pakistan's political drama transcends our comprehension because they have again raised the issue of separate province which is not acceptable to us", she said talking to the media outside the Sindh Assembly Hall.

Talking about the former President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, Maryam said that he was a person who violated the Constitution and was like a damp squib now about whom she did not even want to comment. Clarifying the rumours, he remarked that there are no plans of a "takeover". "However, the idea behind the alliance is great".

"The MQM-P and the PSP coming together seemed like an unnatural alliance, but it was good for the muhajir community", he added. "All the different ethnicities residing in Karachi including Bengali, Bihari, Ounjab, Pathan, Sindhi, Baloch and Gujrati need a single leadership".

Marriyum said that 13 judges and three Courts had dismissed the Hudaibiya Paper Mills Case which was instituted during the dark age of dictatorship for political victimization, adding that even then nothing had emerged from it and even now they would not find anything incriminating in it. He said Sattar has been meeting with PSP for past eight months in which MQM members including Khawaja Izhar and Amir Khan were also present.

Musharraf, himself a Muhajir, had left Pakistan for Dubai in March previous year after the interior ministry issued a notification to remove his name from the exit control list. "Muhajirs are those who have worked the most for the country, given the most sacrifices and are still giving".
