Nawaz Sharif Lahore, Apr 15 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif wants former President Pervez Musharraf to be booked for violating the constitution and sacking the judiciary.

Speaking at a function in Dubai, Sharif said Musharraf had “ignited a fire” in Balochistan by killing Baloch nationalist leader Nawab Akbar Bugti.

“The entire nation is suffering due to the killing of the Baloch leader and it is extremely essential to bring Musharraf to court,” he said.

The Daily Times quoted Sharif as saying that the former president had also derailed the process of composite dialogue with India by neglecting the Lahore Declaration that he had signed with the then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The PML-N chief said Pakistan did not need any foreign aid because its domestic needs could be met through its national resources.

Separately, in an interview with an Indian website, Nawaz said talks could be held with moderate Taliban including banned TTP chief Baitullah Mehsud.

He said he had no personal rivalry with President Asif Ali Zardari and only wanted to strengthen the democratic institutions in Pakistan. (ANI)
