Lahore, May.1 (ANI): Senior Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan has downed speculations regarding former President General Pervez Musharraf returning to the country, saying he is a 'coward', who would never return.
"Pervez Musharraf is a coward, who would never return to Pakistan," Ahsan said while addressing a ceremony here.
Musharraf has himself made it clear on several occasions that he would return to Pakistan if the country needs him and if he garners sufficient support.
But with numerous pending cases against him in various courts across Pakistan and the opposition, particularly the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), pushing for his high treason trial, the former general's return seems to be a distant dream.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has reportedly accepted Musharraf's application to register his new political party, named the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML). (ANI)
