Several parliamentarians offer resignation in key meeting chaired by Jahangir Tareen

Dunya News

Over thirty parliamentarians called on Jahangir Tareen in Lahore.

LAHORE (Dunya News) – Over thirty parliamentarians Saturday called on estranged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen at his residence in Lahore and held a key meeting during which several parliamentarians offered to resign.

Sources privy to the matter informed Dunya News that future strategy was discussed in the sitting. The members said the option of resignations is available if injustice continues; however, the suggestion to resign immediately was rejected.

It is pertinent here to mention that a Banking Court in Lahore, earlier today, extended Jahangir Tareen and his son Ali Tareen’s interim bails in fake bank accounts case till May 3.

Jahangir Tareen talked to media afterwards outside the judicial complex and said it is unknown that who is doing his character assassination but the names will be revealed eventually. The PTI leader said he has not been accused of surging the sugar prices in all three cases and stressed that baseless allegations are leveled against him.

Jahangir Tareen said he did not start his business after joining politics. I was a farmer first, then I started my business and then joined politics, he said while adding that he has a good name Pakistan and will emerge victorious from the cases.

He said FIRs are lodged against him pertaining to matters which are eight to ten years old and should have been probed by the Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).

PTI leader Raja Riaz Ahmad, who accompanied Jahangir Tareen, gave final warning to Prime Minister Imran Khan and asked to not drag this issue any further. We are standing under the flag of PTI with great patience but will be free to make our decision if justice is not served in Riyasat-e-Madina, he stressed.
