Nisar deplores criticism over Musharraf’s departure


ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday deplored the elements engaged in ‘unnecessary’ criticism of departure of former President Pervez Musharraf describing it as their dual standards.

“Name of Pervaiz Musharraf has been deleted from Exit Control List after the judgment of Supreme Court,” he said in a statement.

The minister said Pakistan People’s Party during its five year tenure, despite FIR against Musharraf did not include his name in ECL.

He said PPP, which is now opposing departure of Pervez Musharraf remained friendly to him and did not even talk about him.

Chaudhry Nisar Ali said who gave guard of honour to Pervez Musharraf were now making hue and cry to gain political mileage.
