Confirming the meeting, a statement released by the PM House said that the meeting while taking stock the unfortunate incident of killing 11 coal-miners in Mach, Balochistan on Sunday morning condemned this alarming situation and it was resolved that the perpetrators would be brought to justice.

They were astonished and worried how the culprits who claim themselves the activists of Daesh organisation were present and active in Pakistan and have been far away from the eyes of law enforcing agencies. “Their time is over and would be apprehended soon for which the government will take serious action”, it was resolved.

“The unfortunate Mach, Balochistan incident was highly condemned. It was resolved that the perpetrators would be brought to justice,” the press release said.

The statement further said that the other issue of mutual concern was “continuous human rights violations in Jammu & Kashmir and frequent ceasefire violations over the Line of Control. The meeting expressed concern over the prevailing situation and resolved to continue support to Kashmiri people in their just struggle.”

Gen Bajwa briefed the meeting about his recent visits to LoC and expressed his satisfaction of preparedness and alertness of deployed soldiers there.

Prime Minister Imran Khan flayed opposition’s attitude and blame game against the Army and said that he has instructed his team to counter attack to all allegations. “Opposition leaders just want to achieve their ulterior motives and nothing else but they will never be successful in their drive”, he stated.

“Opposition did try its best to gain political scoring out of his late going to Quetta after Mach incident but people did not support them and he himself negated their negative approach by meeting grieving Hazara families and telling them the truth”; Imran Khan said.
