Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif [ Images ] has blamed former President General Pervez Musharraf [ Images ] for the current chaotic scenario in the country and said that he (Musharraf) had done 'colossal damage' to the long pending Kashmir [ Images ] issue.
"Musharraf is sitting abroad and boasting of being a messiah, despite the fact that he brought about colossal damage for the Kashmir cause," Sharif said during a televison interview.

"I accepted the president's invitation for the sake of democracy and national interests," The Daily Times quoted Sharif, as saying.

"I have no intention to manipulate or draw any advantage. My party's demand in this regard is in the national interest and to fully restore the sovereignty and dignity of parliament. Benazir Bhutto [ Images ] and I had signed the charter in London [ Images ]," he said.
