LAHORE - As a prelude to impeachment of President Musharraf, the National Assembly session is starting today, Monday, August 11. The day, as it chances, is President's birthday, that falls on August 11. The initiation of impeachment proceedings against Pervez Musharraf on the day of his birth is being termed by many as 'birthday gift' to the President from the four-party ruling alliance, which looks determined to impeach him at any cost. General (r) Pervez Musharraf staged a military coup in October 1999 against the then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, now the main architect of impeachment motion against the retired General. Pervez Musharraf, who has been ruling the country since then, was born in Delhi on August 11, 1943. He got his military education from Royal College of Defence, UK, and fought 1965 war against India. Pervez Musharraf was made army chief in 1998 after being elevated as General.
