Tareen meets South Punjab politicians


Senior politician Jahangir Khan Tareen has again become active in political area as he has reportedly opened his political office in Lahore.

Jahangir Khan Tareen also met former lawmakers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf from South Punjab, who recently, parted their ways with PTI.

Sources said he had met 20 important politicians in a week raising suspicions that a forward bloc could emerge in the PTI.

Earlier, Tareen held PTI chairman Imran Khan and party leaders responsible for the Jinnah House attack.

He visited Jinnah House and condemned the attack. He said that he got the chance to visit the Jinnah House and it had deeply saddened him to see how the place was treated. The Corps Commander House was once Jinnah Sahib’s [Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah] house and such an incident had happened after 75 years, he deplored.

Earlier in the month of April, it was reported that a splinter group of former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf leaders has ‘proposed’ forming a new political party to contest the upcoming elections.
