Buzdar ready to address reservations, claims Riaz
Observer Report Islamabad
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government and Jahangir Tareen group reached an agreement after senior ministers contacted disgruntled leader of the ruling party Jahangir Khan Tareen.
The sources revealed the Tareen group would not boycott the upcoming budget 2021-22 session and vote for the federal government.
The estranged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader’s grievances concerning the Punjab government would be addressed, they said. The group was named “Jahangir Tareen like-minded group,” the sources added.
Muhammad Salman Naeem told journalists that they would stage a “power show” in the Punjab Assembly on Friday.
He said that the decision was taken during the
meeting. However, he refused to disclose the names of the participants of the meeting.
The sources quoted Jahangir Khan Tareen as demanding that members of his like-minded group should not be subjected to vindictive tactics. The government and Tareen group members are likely to meet soon, they said.
The rift between Tareen and the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf widened after the former announced his group’s parliamentary leaders in the National and Punjab assemblies on Wednesday.
Talking to the media, Awn Chaudhry and Muhammad Salman Naeem said that the group has appointed MNA Raja Raiz Ahmad as its parliamentary leader in the National Assembly and Saeed Akbar Khan Nawani in the Punjab Assembly.
