PESHAWAR: Former chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Akram Khan Durrani has said the current spate of terror incidents is a conspiracy to sabotage the upcoming general elections.

In a statement after terror attack on his convoy in Bannu, Akram Durrani, who was a federal minister during the last government, said it was the third terror attack on the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) during the last few days, but it is a matter of grave concern that culprits behind these attacks were not unmasked. He said these terror attacks should be thoroughly probed and level playing field should be provided to all the parties contesting the elections.

Akram Durrani vowed to contest the elections despite the ongoing spate of terror attacks. “Another Bilour will come for Haroon Bilour and another Durrani will come for me, and out struggle will continue,” he said.

The former chief minister said life and death are in the hands of Almighty Allah, adding that his party will go for elections come what may. He vowed to serve the masses until his last breath.

Five people lost their lives and 15 others were injured in a bomb blast on the convoy of Akaram Khan Durrani in Bannu on Friday.

Akram Durrani is contesting the election on NA-35 (Bannu) against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on a Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) ticket.
