ISLAMABAD - Rebutting the corruption charges levelled against him by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, President Pervez Musharraf on Monday vowed to defend himself against the impeachment move and prove the allegations baseless. PML-Q President, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain along with Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi called on President Musharraf in presidential camp office and discussed the latest political situation regarding impeachment move. Central command of Q-League informed the President about the decisions of party's CEC meeting and about those party parliamentarians who were standing with the ruling coalition over the impeachment issue.       The President said that allegations levelled against him by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari were baseless. "There is no substance in the accusations brought against me by Asif Ali Zardari. I will defend myself with evidence and these charges will stand proved false", he further said. Another group of PML-Q parliamentarians comprising Sheikh Waqas Akram, Marvi Memon and Amir Muqam also met President Musharraf.  In the meeting, matters relating to impeachment move and overall political situation of the country were discussed. Sheikh Waqas Akram, while talking to The Nation in the Parliament House said that the President would neither dissolve Assemblies nor tender resignation under the ruling coalition's pressure. "The President will face impeachment move courageously and his lawyers would defend him in the Parliament," he added. He said that the allegations of corruption and embezzlement against the President were totally baseless and false.    Sources quoted President as saying that despite the defamation campaign and his character assassination by the ruling coalition, he had no intention to resign. "The President told 'Q' lawmakers that due to his sagacious economic policies, in February 2008, the foreign reserves were sixteen billion dollars", the sources said. According to sources the President would devise his final strategy after studying the charge sheet. Sources revealed that the President told the members of PML-Q delegations that PPP wanted to induct its own people in sensitive institutions including ISI. "PPP also wants to get implemented Kashmir Policy which is against the aspirations of people of Kashmir", the President told the Q-Leaguers. President informed the 'Q' parliamentarians that PPP wanted the enforcement of its own policy on some sensitive issues without taking the Parliament into confidence. As per sources, during the consultation meetings with his aides from PML-Q, President Musharraf asked PML-Q delegations to never get anxious. "PML-Q leaders told the President that the ruling coalition had indulged in horse-trading and it had become impossible for the party to win number game", the sources claimed. President Pervez Musharraf said he was staunch supporter of democracy and would not take any step towards destabilization of the country. Musharraf reiterated that he had taken all the steps in the national interest.   Later on, Chaudhary Shujaat Hussain while talking to the party's minority wing said that he was ready to negotiate with everyone for the national integrity and country's interests, as the present situation of the country was critical. "The ruling coalition should realize the sensitivity of the present situation", he urged, adding that they would face the impeachment move bravely and "we are united under one flag". Shujaat said that all the political parties should get united on the occasion of 14th of August by keeping their differences aside. "If the government would not realize the critical situation of the country now, then it would be a totally different situation on the forthcoming August and the country would have to face more hurdles instead of progress and prosperity", he observed. Speaking on the occasion, party's Secretary General, Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed said that PML-N could not get the judges restored but had got its Ministries back. He alleged that the government had tried to capture ISI but could not do so, and "now they want to occupy the President House but PML-Q would never let them do so". Meanwhile, disappointed by his American friends, President Pervez Musharraf, who faces impeachment by the ruling coalition, has sent an "SOS message" to the Saudi authorities, a source said on Monday, reports The Economic Times. "The message was sent through a senior Saudi diplomat based in Islamabad," the source said, adding the President has received a response that is "not very positive". The source said the Saudi authorities, however, are sending a senior government official to gain a first hand view of the situation arising out of the impeachment move. The source, privy to the developments in Islamabad, said that Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Ali Awadh Asseri would also be soon coming back to the federal capital after cutting short his private visit to his homeland. Musharraf, when he seized power in October 1999 after overthrowing Nawaz Sharif, had sent him into exile in Saudi Arabia. Later, when Nawaz attempted to return to Pakistan last year, Musharraf persuaded the Saudi authorities to "take him back" and he was bundled off after spending over two hours at Islamabad airport. This invited criticism of Saudi authorities, which otherwise command respect among the majority of Pakistanis. However, in November last year, Nawaz with the help of Saudi authorities returned to Pakistan to lead his party in the February general elections. Since then, he has been campaigning against Musharraf and was instrumental in convincing his allies in the ruling coalition to impeach the president. The source said that Saudis may prefer to stay away from the internal politics of Pakistan after the Sharif incident after which, for the first time in the country's history, the media and civil society voiced concern over the Saudis' role. "What I know is that Musharraf may be offered permanent residence in Saudi Arabia if he resigns. The Saudis may manage amnesty for him, sparing him from further humiliation and high treason charges," said the source. AFP adds: President Pervez Musharraf will not resign, his spokesman said on Monday, as the ruling coalition put the finishing touches to impeachment charges against the key US ally. The former general has even faced calls from his own allies to stand down nearly nine years after he grabbed power in a bloodless military coup, but his spokesman dismissed the mounting pressure. "There is no reason that he should resign. Everything they are saying is false, so why should he resign?" presidential spokesman Rashid Qureshi told AFP. The spokesman however declined to comment on Musharraf's plans. His options include trying to defeat impeachment in parliament, dissolving parliament or declaring a state of emergency. It was the first statement from Musharraf's camp since the coalition, which swept to power in elections in February, announced its impeachment plans on Thursday. Meanwhile, President PML-Q, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, has asked the government to do away with the politics of power struggle and non-issues and take steps to resolve problems of the masses. He was speaking at a function organised by the PML-Q Minorities Wing here Monday. Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed, Ch Pervaiz Elahi, Ijazul Haq, MNAs, Ch Wajahat Hussain, Akram Masih Gil, Nosheen Saeed, Marvi Memon, Dr Donia Aziz, Canadian High Commissioner, Imtiaz Ranjha, and Shahbaz Goshi were also present on the occasion. Shujaat said the government was playing a dangerous game and it would soon find itself in a blind alley. "If such a situation persists, we would celebrate the next Independence Day in entirely different circumstances", he warned. He said the PML was ready to hold talks with any political parties. Ch Shujaat claimed that days of present government were numbered and it would soon meet its end. Secretary General PML-Q, Senator Mushahid Hussain, said that the history of the country was incomplete without due mentioning of minorities. He lauded the services of missionary schools and colleges for imparting quality education to the people of Pakistan. He said that the PML government during its five-year tenure, de-nationalised missionary institutions, fulfilled its promise of joint electorate and gave maximum representation to minorities in the Parliament. Mushahid said that present government first tried to occupy the ISI and now it was trying to challenge the Presidency while it would endeavour to overpower the GHQ some day. "Not a single charge of corruption had been levelled against President Musharraf during the last nine years while the leaderships of the PPP and PML had come to the country after signing the NRO. If they have any moral courage, they should first do away with the NRO, instead of impeaching the President. PML-Q Minorities Wing President, Akram Masih Gil, said that minorities felt insecure under the present government. Talking to newsmen after the function, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi that PML-Q and its allies had the full right to defend the President and added that all of the charges levelled against Musharraf, by the ruling coalition, would be proved against itself.
