Islamabad, Nov.28 (ANI): With the constitutional restrictions on him ending today (November 28), former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf has started planning his return for another stint in his country's politics.

According to sources, Musharraf is in constant touch with his close aides to assess the political scenario of the country, and has asked them to pave the way for his return.

Musharraf, who is currently in London on an unannounced exile, has been trying hard to bring his former supporters together.

The former general has already held several round of meetings with several of his close associates in the PML-Q, including leaders of dissident group Hamid Nasir Chatta, Saleem Saifullah Khan and Humayun Akhtar.

Sources said Musharraf has urged his close supporters to contact politicians for the formation of an 'unified' Muslim League excluding the Nawaz Sharif led Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

According to the report, Musharraf is planning to floatt a new political party and has recently "funnelled large sums of money into the coffers of former aides to promote his cause".

"These include former minister of information Sheikh Rasheed, who ...has been paid 1 million dollars, the same amount that went to a public relations team to boost Musharraf's image," the report said.

The report also revealed that former general has received millions of dollars in donations from various corporate biggies and his close associates. (ANI)
