PESHAWAR: Mehsud Taliban group has announced its dissociation from Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Geo News reported on Wednesday.
Mehsud Taliban group spokesman Azam Tariq addressing a press conference said that TTP’s control has fallen into the hands of invisible hands due to a gang of plotters within. He said that the controversy over sect, cult and ideology has given rise to distrusts and misgivings among other sections of Taliban.
We tried our best for reforms and unity within the TTP, but the gang of plotters seemed to have succeeded, he said.
Azam Tariq is the member of TTP central shura also.
Some analysts said that Mehsud Taliban being the the largest group in TTP their separation has almost broken the back of the Taliban movement.
