Musharraf promises his party will bring Pak back "on track of progress"
London, June 15(ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf, who has been vying to stage a comeback on the country's political stage, has reiterated that he would soon return to Pakistan to lift it from the prevalent chaos.
"Pakistan again will be on the track of progress with the efforts of the All Pakistan Muslim League," The Nation quoted Musharraf, as saying.
In a telephonic address to a group of students, Musharraf, who is living in London in an unannounced exile, also emphasised that the youth can play a pivotal role in the country's progress and prosperity.
Earlier this week, the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) had launched an'official' recruitment drive in Karachi to garner public support.
Rashid Qureshi, one of Musharraf's closest aides and his spokesperson, had told reporters that the newly floated party had received a great response from the people of Pakistan.
Responding to a question regarding Musharraf's comeback, Qureshi said: "He (Musharraf) would return soon and would fix the date for his return himself."
Reports regarding Musharraf's return to Pakistan have been doing rounds in the media for a long time now, but it is believed that he is unlikely to take a flight back to Pakistan amidst demands for his high treason trial, particularly from the main opposition party's (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif.
Several cases are pending against Musharraf in courts across Pakistan, and the UN enquiry commission's report also held his regime responsible for the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in December 2007. (ANI)
