If president Musharraf not impeached, rulers will be, says Sh Rashid

KARACHI: The government will impeach President Pervez Musharraf in August or September or will face impeachment, Awami Muslim League (AML) Chairman Sheikh Rashid Ahmad predicted on Sunday.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony of a party office, he expressed concern over “the worsening situation” in the country.

The government would not reinstate sacked chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry even for half-an-hour, the AML chairman said. Rashid said that a split in the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) was imminent. He said that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani was a ‘dummy’ prime minister, adding that the country needed a “strong and genuine” premier. The AML chairman said that PPP leader Makhdoom Amin Fahim should play a role in the current situation. He also noted that while the country was facing multiple crises, the government heads were travelling to Dubai. online
