Islamabad: Former Pakistan military ruler Pervez Musharraf has asked the apex court to "demolish" the government for rigging polls, media reported Friday.

"The Supreme Court of Pakistan should send this government home following the doctrine of necessity as the sitting premier Nawaz Sharif is not capable of running the affairs of this country," Musharraf said in a TV interview, according to Pakistan Today.

Musharraf claimed that Sharif was living under the false impression that Pakistan was progressing under his leadership.

"He is mistaken about his governance to a fault," the former army strongman said.

He further added that the country`s constitution should be amended if it was holding back the country`s growth.

"It is my heartiest desire to see good governance prevailing in Pakistan and it doesn`t matter who brings it about," the ex military-man said. "A third political force is the need of the hour."
