“The organisation of United State (US) based preacher Fethullah Gulen, a suspect linked to the coup attempt, has another superior mind. Moreover, the connections will be deciphered when the right time comes. The emergency has been declared keeping in mind that this may not be the end of the coup bid and there may be more such plans in the pipeline,” said Erdogan while talking to media persons in the national capital.
