Pak Taliban says govt impotent in fight to end bloodshed
Islamabad: Pakistan Taliban has blamed the government for lacking powers to end the bloodshed in the country.
The comment came in as Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) took responsibility for increasing number of attacks on security forces to avenge the killing of the group`s deputy chief, Wali-ur-Rehman Mehsud.
Mehsud was killed in the US drone strike in North Waziristan tribal region, along with six other militants, on May 29.
Spokesperson of the TTP, Ehsanullah Ehsan, had announced a day after Mehsud`s death that the group will take revenge, claiming that the Pakistani authorities were sharing information with the US to facilitate drone strikes.
Ehsan, while blaming Pakistan for the bloodshed, said that the Taliban will respond positively when it feels that the government has real powers and takes serious steps towards the peace process.
The Express Tribune reports that TTP took responsibility for the attack on the check post of the Frontier Constabulary (FC) of Urmar Police on the border of Frontier Region Peshawar last night killing six security men.
According to the report, Ehsan also claimed injuring 10 more FC personnel but avoided comments on reports that several security men are missing.
