Ansar Abbasi’s twisted stand on General Musharraf’s farmhouseMay 30, 2009
(A “Long Live Musharraf“ Report)
Dear visitors, We are proud to expose the malicious and unsubstantiated report of Mr. Ansar Abbasi of ‘The News’ in our blog soon after his one sided and false report was published. Now, we are exposing the twisted stand and position of Mr. Ansar Abbasi throughout this whole episode.
On 23rd May Edition of ‘The News’, Mr. Ansar Abbasi made two main accusations,
1- IESCO has provided former President free of cost transformer and other equipments. 
2- The electricity meter in use is meant for Agricultural use, of which former President is not entitled for. 
All said else was found to be an extension of the second accusation.
On 26th May Edition of ‘The News’, Mr. Ansar Abbasi made a new story, claiming that farmhouse is now getting Fata power rates by IESCO .
Enjoy the sensational words of him, “The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) has silently changed the power connection of former president Pervez Musharraf’s palatial house at Chak Shahzad following unearthing of the power theft scandal by The News.”
There were few more important points in the story as well, like’
“While Musharraf has already been reported to have said that he was not involved in any irregularity, one of his sympathiser in an unsigned note conveyed that the story on Musharraf’s electricity tariff was factually incorrect. He, whose name was not even disclosed by the source to this correspondent, added the bill shown was of the meter installed when the plot was bought and was being used till now. “The new and proper meter will be installed this week. Secondly, full payment was made for the transformer,” concluded the note.” 
And this one;
“The SDO claimed Musharraf had applied for the new connection some six months back and have also paid the fee for the installation of transformer.” 
Mr. Ansar Abassi appeared on 28th May 2009 with this story;
“A self-claimed spokesman of Musharraf and the architect of his farmhouse, in a rejoinder e-mailed to The News on Tuesday, refuted different ‘facts’ of The News stories but argued that the agriculture tariff was installed in routine “by default” till a house was built on the plot for permanent occupancy.” 
Now, if we analyse the overall twists and change of position by Mr. Ansar Abassi, we can easily judge ourselves the way he maligned the issue to make sensationalism.
Firstly, Mr. Abbasi came with a report that transformer is provided to Farmhouse free of cost  and that the electricity tariff is illegally provided . Then he appeared with a news that IESCO is now providing Fata power rates . Then, he admitted that a rejoinder to his one sided report is received by ‘The News’ which clearly stated that full cost of the transformer was already paid and that the new meter will be installed this week . It is interesting to note that instead of publishing the rejoinder, Mr. Abbasi tried to ridicule it by his non-professional and biased attitude, like using the words “one of his sympathiser…” and “few days before Musharraf was ‘uttering’ these words”. In the same story, he also admitted himself that Musharraf already had applied for the new connection and that the fee for the installation of transformer is also paid, as confirmed by the SDO of IESCO .
The story of 28th May was the most interesting in which Mr. Abbasi indirectly admitted that all his allegations were fake and false. Although, Mr. Abassi twisted the facts again by his well designed words, like; “A self-claimed spokesman of Musharraf….” and “refuted different ‘Facts’ of The News stories…” So, Mr. Abassi is claiming that whatever published in his newspaper is ‘FACT’, because it suits him. However, Mr. Abbasi placed the text of rejoinder in his story. For every reader, who believes in well balanced reporting, it should be the matter of extreme disappointment that Mr. Abbasi had done nothing in 28th May report, instead of making new scandals and taking irrelevant issues. Matter of fact is that all his facts are proved wrong and he could not stand by his story. Regular procedure is followed throughout the construction and installments of IESCO. Cost of transformer has been paid. Once the farmhouse was completed and ready for residence, application was given for change in tariff.
We have received numerous mails, asking where Abbasi’s claim of Free Transformer and fata meter is gone, now? He himself admitted later that payment was made and application was given. So, where is his earlier claim, which according to him was ‘Fact?’ Role of Mr. Abbasi in making non-professional, half quoted and twisted stories to fabricate the realities and to make disinformation is now well exposed. All his initial claims are refuted and he has been left by nothing more to say.
We have confirmed by our sources that ‘The News’ deliberately refused to publish the rejoinder, sent on 24th May, from the architect of Farmhouse, on the behalf of former President. Realising the ill-intentions of Mr. Ansar Abbasi, we got the rejoinder from our sources and published exclusively on http://LongLiveMusharraf.WordPress.com to make the record straight for our visitors. We have also been informed that ‘The News’ published the rejoinder on 28th May, after getting message of starting up of legal case of defamation against the newspaper and the reporter by former President.
It is also interesting to note that on 23rd May’s story, Mr. Ansar Abbasi also claimed that there is Redco’s site office in the farmhouse of Mr. Saif-ur-Rehman. The next day, he clarified his own allegation by saying that there is no site office. So he gave ‘facts’ without even verifying them. He is not consistent and he just works on hearsay and gossip and still calls himself investigation reporter. We request our visitors to be careful of such so called ‘journalists’, who are scum on the name of balanced and professional journalism. We need to expose them LOUD and CLEAR, as they are making damage to Pakistan by their disinformation. We have many solid reasons to believe that such so called ‘journalists’ are also on the payroll of political parties and even Talibans, as well.
