KARACHI: All-Pakistan Muslim League (APML) chief and former president retired Gen Pervez Musharraf said on Sunday that those talking against Pakistan and its army were enemies of the country.
In a telephonic address to a rally of his party, he said the army was the defender of the country’s borders and it had rendered immense sacrifice for the nation. He added that not only had the army worked to defend the country, but also contributed greatly to its socio-economic sector.
The former army chief accused leaders of the PML-N of talking against the judiciary and the army with the objective of creating chaos in the country.
He urged the Supreme Court to take notice of the propaganda of the “corrupt politicians” who were trying to vilify national institutions.
Mr Musharraf said his party and PML-Functional were talking to other like-minded parties to form a platform for jointly contesting the coming general elections in the country. “If an alliance of these parties came to power after the election, all corrupt elements in the country would be made accountable,” he said.
He said he would soon address a public meeting in the city’s district central where he would highlight some important issues of the country, and offer their solutions.
