|PTI condemns Lower Dir Blast|
19 September 2012
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Chairman Imran Khan, Vice Chairman PTI Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Secretary General Dr. Arif Alvi, President Javed Hashmi and Information secretary Shafqat Mahmood strongly condemns the bomb blast which killed 14 people, including three women, and wounded 10 others inLower Dir. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf condemns all acts of violence targeting innocent people of Pakistan and it is very unfortunate that the extremists are targeting civilians including women and children. This act of violence is a result of sheer lack of concern regarding law and order by the current government. Provincial and federal government has failed miserably to protect and safeguard a common man’s life and they seem to be helpless in controlling the law and order in the country. PTI’s most important task would be to control terrorism and major part of our revenue will be diverted to equip and train the security personnel. The party believes that supporters of violence aim to destroy national unity by targeting innocent people. PTI believes that such issues can only be solved by dialogue and consultation.
PTI Chairman expressed his concern over the deteriorating law and order situation. Chairman also expressed deep sorrow for the bereaved families and prayed for speedy recovery of the injured.
