'No change in me'

By B. Muralidhar Reddy

ISLAMABAD JULY 12. Conscious of the fact that his popularity graph has dipped considerably since the controversial presidential referendum in April this year, the Pakistan President, Pervez Musharraf, sought to re-establish his credentials as the "same Musharraf who took over in October 1999".

At the beginning of his speech Gen. Musharraf said the morale of the country seemed to be going up and down and there was a sense of despondency that has gripped the people.

``It seems my own popularity keeps going up and down. There is a tendency among the people to change their views very fast. Let me assure you that I am the same Musharraf that took over the reins of the country in October 1999. There is no change in me''. At a later stage while making a passionate appeal to the people to take his words at face value, Gen. Musharraf said he did not believe in making false promises or indulging in "fraud".
