Lahore, Sep.11 (ANI): Saudi King Abdullah was ’surprised’ to hear Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf, during his recent Saudi Arabia visit, say that his visit was for Pakistan and not for any personal gain.
“During Musharraf’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah was surprised to hear Musharraf say he was not there for personal gains but for Pakistan,” Musharraf’s spokesman Rashid Qureshi said.
In an interview with a private television channel, Qureshi said Musharraf, during his regime, did not misuse even a ’single penny’.
Qureshi said Musharraf used to consult the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-led government on all his decisions of national importance,The Daily Times reports.
He criticized people for calling the slain Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti a martyr and said he (Bugti) had ‘refused to negotiate with the government and initiated a rebellion against the state.’ (ANI)
