Former President Pervez Musharraf says that removing him from the post of Chief of Army Staff was a “blunder” on Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif’s part.
Speaking on the show “Frontline” on Express News, he claimed that even Shahbaz Sharif was not aware of this move and he had later informed Musharraf about it.
Recalling his tenure as army chief, Musharraf said he was on good terms Shahbaz Sharif and current Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
The former president said that while he was serving as army chief, he had told Shahbaz Sharif on several occasions to tell Nawaz Sharif to improve governance and work for the improvement of the economy.
The PML-N had earlier demanded that the government register a case under Article 6 (High Treason) against Musharraf for abrogating the constitution and dislodging the democratically elected government on October 12, 1999.
