Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has reportedly decided to arrive in Islamabad in January next year, instead of on March 23rd.

Keeping in view the prevailing political scenario of the country, the head of the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) made slight changes in his programme to land in Pakistan, the Daily Times quoted APML leader Rashid Qureshi, as saying.

He said that his new return schedule had been prepared, according to which Musharraf would land at the Lahore Airport at the end of January.

Insisting that Musharraf would return to Pakistan on March 23, APML central vice president Dr Ghulam Mujtaba had claimed: "The basic and real problem facing the country is its slowing economy. However, Musharraf is the only political figure who could safeguard it. He said Pakistan would need no foreign aid if looted money of the country was recovered."

"Musharraf is the only person on whom the world relies. The donor agencies, which are currently reluctant to give funds to the present rulers, will give funds to the country over their trust on him," he added. (ANI)
