Nawaz Sharif `brainless`, says Musharraf

Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf says former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is "totally brainless".

Islamabad: Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, who launched his own party in London Friday to contest the 2013 elections in Pakistan, says former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is "totally brainless" and had failed to deliver on the two occasions he was elected.

Musharraf, who seized power from Sharif in a bloodless coup in 1999, said at a rally in Britain Saturday, "I worked with him for an entire year and noticed that Nawaz Sharif is totally brainless."

Musharraf added that the "disciples" of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief crossed the limits while giving remarks on television, according to Pakistani daily The News.

"One whose face is not pleasant should at least talk pleasant," Musharraf added.
The former president, who has been living in exile after being forced to quit power in 2008, rallied with his supporters in the British city of Birmingham Saturday, a day after the launch of his political party All Pakistan Muslim League.
