Nawaz wanted a puppet army chief

Claiming that he had disappointed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif by refusing to become a puppet army chief, former military ruler Pervez Musharraf said Sharif had lost his marbles and his statement of “saving the army and the country” was a lie, a private TV channel reported on Wednesday.
He said even Nawaz’s brother Shahbaz Sharif did not know what Nawaz was up to and that his intentions were twisted from day one, adding that he (Musharraf) would never plunder the nation’s wealth.
He said “Nawaz conspired against me and left for America a day before the scheduled meeting on Kargil issue,” adding that he was not in contact with those who carried out the operation on October 12.
He also accused Nawaz Sharif’s government of ‘losing the Kashmir cause’, adding that it was impossible for Sharif to work with anyone.
“I only see hopelessness in Pakistan,” he said.
