London, Feb.18 (ANI): The PML-Q, the party otherwise known as the King’s Party, assembled by President Musharraf himself six years ago to legitimise his “managed” democracy, allied with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, will “certainly have the majority, Musharraf told Jemima Khan during an interview in Rawalpindi.
Whe she suggested that the recent opinion polls pointed otherwise, Musharraf dismissed the polls as biased, and conducted by local organisations that were against him.
“They have been abusing me right from the beginning and you will never get good results from them,” he told her while she interviewed him on behalf of The Independent.
He seems increasingly paranoid, she opines.
“The media have let me down … The NGOs are against me. I don’t know why. I think I have been the strongest proponent of human rights …”, he says.
He also says that the Western leaders have been “absolutely supportive” and “express total solidarity”. (ANI)
