"Unable to run Pak, the Prez could lead it to another tragedy," says an ex-PM.

Former Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif has said that the country's President Pervez Musharraf would be taught a lesson for subverting the Constitution, overthrowing an elected government and bringing destruction to the country.

In a most scathing attack, Sharif was quoted as saying in the Dawn that the General was "unable to run the country, and could lead the country to another tragedy".

Sharif also accused Pakistani army generals of "handing over" Siachen to India in 1984 and endangering the sovereignty of the country.

The exiled former PM was referring to the Indian army capturing the heights of Siachen glacier in a surprise operation in 1984 during the General Zia-ul Haq's rule in Pakistan.

Sharif also criticised Pakistan's Kashmir policy, the privatisation of the state-run Pakistan Steel Mills, and the rampant corruption.

Musharraf had overthrown the Nawaz Sharif's government on October 12, 1999, after the latter had sacked him as army chief.

Subsequently, he banished the Sharif family to Saudi Arabia where they stayed for five years before moving to London on Jan 29.

Sharif urged the people to stand up against the 'dictatorship', which had pushed the country to destruction.

He apprehended another tragedy for the country in case the dictators continued to occupy the driving seat.
