KARACHI: Pakistan's former president and military ruler General (retired) Pervez Musharraf has sought to blame India for ceasefire violations along Line of Control, saying it should stop testing the "patience and resolve" of Pakistani Army.           

Musharraf, who is facing a treason case in the Supreme Court, said, "Regular ceasefire violations on the LoC by the Indians is not good for the region and deplorable."  

"I think India should stop testing the patience and resolve of the Pakistani Army," he said on Express News.            

Relations between the two countries have been tense in recent times due to repeated ceasefire violations along the LoC for which both governments blame each other.   

According to India's Border guarding force BSF, firing by Pakistani troops along International Border (IB) in the past two months was possibly the "heaviest" since the 1971 war.     

On the anti-government protests led by opposition leader Imran Khan and firebrand cleric Tahirul Qadri, Musharraf said, "The present governance, political and elections system in Pakistan have become redundant."  

"I think it is now clear that all political parties have to sit together so that a consensus national government can be formed and fresh elections be held," Musharraf, who heads All Pakistan Muslim League party said.  

The former military ruler said "changes are now a foregone conclusion" in Pakistan and the political and electoral system had to be changed for the better future of the country..
