Islamabad, Aug. 24 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari's office is alone in-charge of all the affairs of former president Pervez Musharraf, including the facilities being provided to him by the government.

An informal cell, which works directly under the instructions of Zardari, has been entrusted with the task to safeguard the interests of Musharraf, The News reports.

According to sources, the cell is being headed by a close associate of the president and chalked out the strategy in the light of the instructions from the high ups.

All this was done according to the broader understanding reached when the retired general was shown the door one year ago, they added.

The sources also revealed that the PML-N knew about the support that Musharraf was getting from his successor but it was keeping quiet in view of the precarious situation in the country.

The top leadership of the PML-N had time to time complained about the patronage the former president was getting form the Presidential Palace.

Meanwhile, former president has stopped giving political statements about the situation in Pakistan and his past role. (ANI)
