PESHAWAR: As death toll from Peshawar school attack sends shock waves across the country, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan on Tuesday decided to postpone his party’s nationwide shutdown scheduled for December 18, Express News reported.

At least 120 people, mostly school students, were killed when armed gunmen stormed the school building located on Warsak Road.

PTI chief Imran, while speaking to the media, condemned the brutal attack and said his party will not go ahead with his decision to shut down the entire country.

Imran had announced to ‘paralyse’ Faisalabad, Karachi, Lahore and then the entire country as part of his ‘Plan C’ to put pressure on the government for an audit of 2013 general elections.

    He can condemn only the government, the Taliban are his brethren. I remember how hard he has tried to ensure that an operation is not launched against the terrorists. Hats off to HRCP for singling out the KP govt’s hypocrisy in its statement today. Shame on Imran for keeping his own children so safe that they are not the part of their tsunami. Shame on IK. He has lost the votes of my whole family. An animal who is a partner of the butchers who murdered our children today.

    This morning he was again talking about so called dhandli and PM came to him when he was in hospital. To direct question about his statement, “I would not have send army”, the guy simply turned eyes. Imran history will not forgive you.

    Isn’t this guy’s party the ruling party in KP? Aren’t they the ones who needed to provide food, clothing, security and shelter to their province? Shouldn’t he first make KP a model state before going for a Naya Pakistan? What does KP stand for now? Its just rubbish that this guy is treated as the next big thing. Quite appalled that when an incident like this has happened, he has done nothing to call on the ministers for steps to protect lives atleast children. Shame on you mate!!!
