General Murad Ali Murad has said that Taliban had planned to control Kunduz for a few days and bring Mullah Mansour there.
He has also said that the plan included a media gathering by Mullah Mansour in Kunduz to show that he is in Afghanistan.
Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour who took over the charge of Taliban after Mullah Mohammad Omar was confirmed dead is believed to be living in Pakistan.
In several occasions, Afghan government asked Pakistan to act against the enemies of Afghanistan enjoying safe havens there but so far has received only empty promises.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif has said that Afghanistan’s enemy is Pakistan’s enemy, but still no action against Quetta and Peshawar Shuras considered the back bone of Taliban has been done.
Quetta is the capital of Pakistan’s Baluchistan province and Peshawar is the capital city of its Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province where reportedly Taliban commanders get to gather and issue rulings to militants on the ground in Afghanistan.
