APML terms August 18 a dark day


All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Spokesman Fawad Chaudhry has termed August 18, 2008 as a “destructive day in the political history of Pakistan”, when his party chief and former president Pervez Musharraf resigned as president.
In a press statement issued here from APML Lahore Secretariat on Thursday, Chaudary said since Musharraf’s departure in 2008, the country had been facing internal and external challenges.
The APML spokesman said that during Musharraf’s regime, Pakistan was making progress at a growth rate of 7.4 percent and the country was enlisted among the 11 countries’ list with fastest growth rate in the world.
“Pakistan was led on the way to progress and development under the leadership of Pervez Musharraf,” he added. He said there were no energy shortage, high inflation and law and order situation when compared with present times. He cited rates of various commodities then and now. Fawad Chaudhry said that during Musharraf’s tenure Pakistan was not diplomatically isolated as it was now. Fawad said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif made tall claims of long march and snap polls just to stay in the news, when his party had failed to hold local bodies’ elections in the province. He said the APML under the leadership of Pervez Musharraf would participate in the next general elections and that Musharraf would arrive in Pakistan before March 23, 2012.
