PM House dismisses Musharraf’s statement

ISLAMABAD: The Prime Minister House on Tuesday categorically denied the comments made by General (retd) Pervaiz Musharraf regarding alleged differences with the prime minister.

In a statement, a spokesperson of PM Office termed the statement as utterly baseless, malicious, untrue and concocted.

In an interview, Musharraf had stated that the differences had started when Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told him to remove two serving Major Generals under his command.

The spokesman said that no such issue was discussed between them.

In an interview to a private news channel, Musharraf had thanked General (retd) Raheel Sharif for his help. Musharraf said he had also served as the Army chief and as General (retd) Raheel’s boss.

“This is why he helped me,” Musharraf said.

According to Musharraf political cases were lodged against him and his name was placed in the exit control list (ECL).

In reply to a question Musharraf said, “The courts work under pressure and give verdicts accordingly. The former Army Chief helped reduce that pressure.”

Former President Musharraf left the country in March this year for Dubai where he has already resumed his political activities.

Musharraf, 70, is facing a number of high profile cases, including murder and high treason. He was indicted for treason last year over his imposition of emergency rule in 2007.
