QUETTA, Jul 15 (APP):Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan Sunday termed the Mastung suicide attack a conspiracy to delay the general election 2018.
Talking to media persons here, he said, “The country’s internal and external enemies are behind the Mastung tragic incident.”
Imran Khan was in the Balochistan capital to condole with the family of Nawabzada Siraj Raisani, who along with around 130 persons was martyred during a suicide attack on an election meeting in Mastung district on Friday.
The PTI chief said Siraj Raisani was a patriot citizen and political leader of the country.
He said non-implementation of the National Action Plan in its true spirit was the reason behind the terrorist incidents in the area.
“We, however, will not postpone the forthcoming election since that is what the anti-state elements want,” he added.
Imran Khan also visited the Combined Military Hospital to inquire after the health of those, who were injured in the Mastung attack.
