Pakistan had problems as a result of PTI’s “appeasement” of TTP: Bilawal

The Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, according to Pakistan’s foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari. The PTI-led administration “appeased” an illegal group, which created issues for Pakistan (TTP).

Bilawal reiterated that the present administration has abandoned PTI’s agenda in an interview with Al Jazeera, calling Khan’s plan “wrong.”

According to Bilawal, the government agreed to “not tolerate” terrorist organizations in Pakistan and lawbreakers during its National Security Meeting (NSC), which was attended by senior political and military authorities.

Following the TTP’s announcement that the truce with Pakistan will expire, there has been a substantial increase in terrorism attacks in Pakistan over the past few months, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

The Taliban leaders in neighboring Afghanistan share certain ideological similarities with the Pakistani Taliban, which is primarily made up of local combatants.

Afghanistan has always refuted Islamabad’s allegations that it is using its territory against Pakistan.

Without naming it, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has also requested that the Kabul administration refrains from giving terrorist organizations safe refuge on its territory.

Even though women are not permitted to work for NGOs by the Afghan government, the foreign minister emphasized the importance of talking to the Taliban.

Engaging and convincing the Afghan government in matters pertaining to women’s rights or the war against terrorism. The wisest course of action, according to Bilawal, is to honor their promises to the international community.

PPP representative claimed that due to their shared border’s length and porousness, disengagement is not even an option for Pakistan.

That was said by the foreign minister. In response to the assault on Pakistan’s Head of Mission in Kabul, he hasn’t called Ubaid-ur-Rehman Nizamani back home.

He had to return for some discussions and briefings. I’m hoping we’ll soon have the security we need to send him,” he said.

In 2022, terrorism

Data provided by (PICSS), a think tank with a base in Islamabad, support this. When compared to November 2022, the number of militant attacks climbed by 44% in December.

The extremists carried out 49 strikes in December, which resulted in 56 fatalities, including 32 children.

In December, the militants conducted 49 attacks, which led to the deaths of 56 people. 32 members of the security services and 17 civilians are included.

81 other persons were hurt in these attacks, including 50 civilians and 31 members of the security forces.

According to the research, December 2022 saw the most militant attacks in a single month.

The PICSS figures show a 28% increase in terror occurrences from 2021 to 2022. Additionally, it was the year with the most attacks in the preceding five.



After the merger, PTI ‘offered’ CM Parvez Elahi the position of Punjab president.

  • Before making a decision, CM Elahi said he will talk with stakeholders.
  • Elahi: So yet, no decision had been made in this regard.
  • Says Khan was their benefactor and someone they will always remember.

LAHORE: According to a recent admission made by Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi, Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), offered him the position of party president in the province in exchange for the merger of the PML-Q with his organization.

The chief minister made a suggestion last week that the PTI and PML-Q might join. Khan presented the merger plan during a meeting last Friday.

At a ceremony in Lahore, CM Elahi addressed the media and made it plain that his party had to engage its supporters and employees before making any such move.

According to the chief minister, the PML-Q had 10 MPAs in Punjab and they had to first consult the residents of their respective constituencies.

When asked about the show-cause notice PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain served on him, CM Elahi responded Imran.

When asked about the show cause notice PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain sent to him, CM Elahi stated Imran Khan was their benefactor and someone they would never forget.

After Elahi discussed the potential for his party to join the PTI on January 16, the PML-Q suspended his basic party membership.


The notice, a copy of which was also given to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), stated, “Your [Elahi] party membership is suspended till the explanation.”

The statement went on to say that. Elahi’s statements violated all of the PML-rules Q’s and regulations, party discipline, voter base, and distinctive identity.

Speaking on the situation, CM Elahi claimed that people who had given him the show cause felt uneasy.

Additionally, sources claimed that the majority of PTI’s senior leaders were against the merger concept. Because they still think PTI can win the election on its own, they think this might badly weaken the party and only help the PML-Q.

Similarly to this, some top PTI cadre members think the party’s leader should rely on party veterans rather than pursuing a merger with the PML-Q. Whose leadership may ultimately profit from circumstances similar to those that occurred in the instance of Mian Azhar. Considering the cloud of potential disqualification that already hangs over him.

When contacted, senior party leader Shafqat Mehmood dispelled this misconception and claimed no one had objected to this matter.
