Is India scared of Pervez Musharraf

December 10, 2010

Former president Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf would contest election from Chitral district, a top leader of the newly launched All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) said on Sunday.

Addressing a public meeting here, APMLSecretary General Muhammad Ali Saif said his party would usher a new era of development in the country. “The demand of people of Chitral that Pervez Musharraf should contest election from their district has proved that the masses want a change in the politics of the country and that only a revolutionary leader can bring these changes,” he remarked.

Saif said that champions of democracy and rights of the people were depositing huge amounts of ill-gotten money in their foreign bank accounts and inflation had reached the highest level. “Those raising the slogans of ‘Pakistan Khappey’ are looting the country and are depriving them of bread, cloth and home,” he said.

Muhammd Ali Saif, who is also a spokesman for the former president, said the government was taking credit of the development projects started by the previous government.

Khalid Pervez son of MNA Shahzada Mohiuddin was appointed acting convenor and Faizur Rehman as secretary general of the party, on the occasion. ‘Musharraf to contest election from Chitral’

NEW DELHI: Former president Pervez Musharraf has vowed never to visit to India again after being denied a visa by the Indian government, a report said on Friday.

“I have no words to explain my disappointment,” Musharraf was quoted as telling The Indian Express newspaper by telephone from his home in Dubai.

“Your government has dashed my hopes. I think it shows a lack of confidence on the part of India to face me,” he said, according to the paper’s website.

The former president, who was born in New Delhi before the partition of the sub-continent, had been invited to India by private organisations to attend seminars and meet the media.

“I don’t plan to come to India ever again,” Musharraf said, citing the visa refusal as an affront to his “honour and dignity.”

Indian government officials have confirmed the visa request was denied, but declined to elaborate on the reasons.
