Lahore, Mar. 10 (ANI): Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed has claimed that former president Pervez Musharraf was ready to name Benazir Bhutto the prime minister for the third time.

According to a private TV channel, Rasheed said Benazir was in contact with Musharraf prior to the signing the Charter of Democracy.

"The long march does not remain in the lawyers' hand now, as the politicians have joined the show," the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.

Rashid also criticized Nawaz Sharif's decision to take to the streets, which would provide extra time to Zardari, but "the third force" would overthrow both of them if the confrontation continued. (ANI)
