LAHORE: Chaudhry Sarfraz Anjum Kahlon, political advisor to former president Pervez Musharraf on Friday categorically dismissed all claims about Musharraf leaving Pakistan for good.
He said the claims were “totally baseless and without any merit”.
Musharraf will continue to live in Pakistan and “there is no exit strategy,” he said.
The former president is currently being tried in several cases and continues to be detained at his Islamabad residence.
“The political entities who feel intimidated by Musharraf’s presence must realize that he is a soldier who has fought for Pakistan and nothing scares him. Musharraf dedicated his life to Pakistan the day he joined the armed forces and he has every right as a citizen to live with his people,” Anjum stated.
APML, PTI in talks
Anjum confirmed reports that the All Pakistan Muslim League has been approached by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and discussions between the political parties are underway to identify areas of mutual interest.
Sarfraz Anjum was recently appointed as the official political advisor to Musharraf and is also credited for APML’s success in Chitral.
