Washington, Apr.22 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf is likely to join 'practical politics' soon as he is expected to be made the president of the newly floated All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), a close aide of the autocratic ruler has revealed.

The aide, who spoke of conditions of anonymity, also disclosed that a number of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leaders, including Faisal Saleh Hayat, Hamid Nasir Chattah, and Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri met Musharraf in Abu Dhabi recently and assured him of all their support.

They, however, clarified that due to election laws it would not be possible for them to join the APML at present.

Musharraf, who is on US tour these days, has also denounced the UN report, which blamed his regime for the tragic death of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Musharraf believes that he could not be held responsible for Bhutto's assassination because he was neither the head of the government nor the Army Chief at the time of the attack, The News quoted the former President's close aide, as saying. (ANI)
