India behind Mastung suicide blast: Shahbaz Sharif

LAHORE – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif has blamed India for the Mastung blast that killed over 130 Pakistanis on Friday.

He on Saturday said that India was involved in Mastung suicide blast which left 131 including younger brother of former Balochistan chief minister Aslam Raisai, Nawabzada Siraj Raisani martyred and dozens others wounded.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Saturday, he said that there was no doubt about India’s involvement in Mastung blast, adding that New Delhi has always tried to incite violence in Pakistan by fanning terrorism.

The ex-Punjab CM lamented Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman over his statement linking terrorism with Nawaz Sharif’s tough time, adding that they strongly condemn the Mastung blast.

Commenting about the yesterday’s rally to accord rousing welcome to the former PM and his daughter, Shehbaz said that the entire Lahore was on road, adding that they were barred from marching towards the airport. He thanked the people who came out to welcome Nawaz Sharif.

The PML-N president said that it is injustice to hold the trial of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz in jail, adding that only terrorists are tried in jail. “We were tried in jail during the Musharraf rule,” he said.
