We will bury further coup attempters: Turkish nationalist party leader
AA PhotoThe leader of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) has commented on rumors of a second coup attempt after the July 15 putsch, believed to have been masterminded by followers of U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, vowing to “bury further coup plotters.”
“If the coup plotters are coming back, they should be ready to be buried,” MHP head Devlet Bahçeli said in his party’s parliamentary group meeting in Ankara on Oct. 4, adding that “the coup plotters would go like they come.”
“There are rumors that FETÖ [Fethullahist Terrorist Organization] didn’t give up and its sleeping cells are going to be armed one again. The ones who allege these things and who bring about crisis, chaos and fear have malicious intentions. What does it mean that a second coup attempt will take place? Are we going to hide when the traitors are revolting?” he asked, criticizing the rumors of a second government seizure.
Saying those planning a putsch “should be ready to pay the price,” Bahçeli said “those who didn’t take a lesson from July 15 must be insane.”
“If there are some who didn’t take a lesson from the epic July 15 resistance of the Turkish people, then they are either insane or want to die,” he said.
During his speech, the MHP head said “no mortal will be able to threaten Turkey or take revenge on it.”
“There should be an end to the monstrous comments that spread fear on TV. They say that the traitors will come again and the coup plotters are making preparations. In that case, we’ll be waiting for them,” he added.
