Lahore, Nov.12 (ANI): Joining hands with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in demanding former President General Pervez Musharraf's trial under the Article Six of the Constitution, the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has vowed to put the former general behind bars.

Furious over Musharraf's remarks against President Asif Ali Zardari, senior Punjab minister and PPP leader Raja Riaz Ahmed Musharraf's trial under the high treason charges was inevitable and that no power can save him from prosecution.

Addressing a press conference, Ahmed said his party would hold demonstrations against Musharraf throughout Punjab on November 16 over his 'filthy' remarks against Zardari.

"A dictator who ruled the country for eight years had no right to use such filthy language against the PPP co-chairperson and the people of Pakistan would never forgive him for the mistake," The News quoted Ahmed, as saying.

Musharraf, during an interview, had called the Pakistan President a "criminal", a "fraud" and a "third rater".

Ahmed said the Zardari was selected democratically and any attempts to 'isolate' him would positively be foiled.

"Musharraf has invited his own destruction by maligning the PPP and he would have to face its consequences,' he said. (ANI)
