Islamabad, Aug.14 (ANI): Political parties in Pakistan have no consensus among them over the trial of former president General Pervez Musharraf.

While the Awami National Party (ANP) has supported charges against Musharraf, the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) has clarified that it would not support any legal action against the former general.

Interacting with media persons here, ANP chief Asfandyar Wali Khan said Musharraf should be tried under Article 6 of the constitution.

Khan said he was never against holding Musharraf responsible for country's present chaotic situation.

In an interview with a private television channel, PML-Q chief Shujaat Hussain said his party would never support any case filed against Musharraf.

"Those who failed to resolve the people's problems should be tried in court before Musharraf was charged for treason," The Daily Times quoted Hussain, as saying. (ANI)
