APML mulling ways to find some political friends
08 October, 2012
LAHORE: The All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) after finding itself standoffish in the political arena is mulling ways to find some political friends as all the old buddies of former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf have taken a stand against him.
In the present political scenario when all of his supporters and allies have changed stance on certain national issues and even ignited criticism on Musharraf for erroneous steps, the APML has started censure on the politicians that were standing with them and now arguing for the steps had taken during Musharraf regime.
Some APML sources have claimed that after a cold shoulder from Imran Khan and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to forge an alliance with their party, Musharraf's aides have advised him to end blame game against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to get their support.
The fresh attempt to muster support from Chaudhry brothers' rivals and political giant in the country's politics, PML-N, surfaced on Sunday, when the APML called Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leaders 'opportunists'.
APML spokeswoman and Information Secretary Aasia Chaudhry in a policy statement said that Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain by levelling allegations on Musharraf can't save Pervaiz Elahi from Benazir Bhutto's murder accusations.
She said that Chaudhry brothers misguided Musharraf during his regime on issues like Lal Masjid, Kala Bagh Dam and imposition of emergency in the country, and were now trying to mislead the nation. She said the person who joined ranks of his own father's murderers for personal gains could do anything for vested interests.
The spokeswoman said before criticising anyone, Chaudhry brothers must evaluate their own character as just because of their hypocratic policies, their stalwarts were leaving them with every day passing. In a direct hit to Shujaat, she said Chaudhrys were trying to gain popularity by giving statements against Musharraf, while they were the advisers to Musharraf on different national issues.
