Islamabad: Mullah Fazulullah has refused to accept Khan Said Sajna as new chief of TTP. According to sources  Mullah Fazlullah has categorically refused to accept any Mehsud as new chief of Tehrik-i-Taliban (TTP) stating that TTP must have come out from one family or one clan and other people should also give a chance to lead the group. Sources confirmed that Fazlullah has support of Arab, Chechen and Tajik splinter groups that are no more part of Taliban Afghanistan and are living in restive areas of tribal belt of Pakistan.

TTP Majlis-e-Shura (central advisory  committee)  met at an undisclosed location in the North Waziristan tribal area on Saturday and placed Khan Said alias  Sajna as new Chief of TTP who received 43 out of 60 votes of the members of the TTP Shura. However other groups of TTP including Bajur group refused to accept this development and help a meeting in Kunar province of Afghanistan and decided to install Mullah Fazlullah as new chief of TTP.


Afghan war experts believe that TTP decision to install another Mehsud as chief confirms that TTP has become  a political party instead of a guerrilla warfare outfit. It may be mentioned all previous chiefs were one family and one clan—Mehsud tribe.
