Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) has criticised the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for its reported nexus with extremist groups in the country and sought an explanation.
A PTI spokesman, while commenting on a reported statement by Maulana Mohammad Ahmed Ludhianvi of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat, saying that the PML-N had approached him for seat-adjustment arrangement in the coming elections, alleged that the PML-N had been associated with extremist groups for a long time, reports The Dawn.
He said Ludhianvi's statement nullified repeated denials by PML-N leaders that they had no interaction with extremist elements. He added that PML-N's policy had endangered lives of innocent people.
The spokesman said that people still remember a public statement made by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif after successive terror attacks in Lahore, requesting the Taliban not to target his government because the PML-N and Taliban had the same ideology. (ANI)
