Canada Global (Web News) Jahangir Khan Tareen, the estranged leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has chosen to found a new national-level political party, according to people familiar with the issue.
The sources claim that PTI leaders who are dissatisfied with the party are also anticipated to join the new system. In addition to those, Tareen is anticipated to team up with other political families from Dera Ghazi Khan, Rajanpur, Muzzafargarh, Lodhran, and Multan.
Numerous “important leaders” from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan, according to the sources, have also gotten in touch with the former PTI leader.
According to sources, Tareen will serve as the party’s patron-in-chief.
Before being removed from politics in 2017, Tareen served as the PTI’s secretary general. Hanif Abbasi, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), had petitioned the Supreme Court to remove Tareen for being “dishonest” and finding him ineligible for office.
Abbasi had petitioned the Supreme Court to have Tareen and PTI Chairman Imran Khan disqualified.
Tareen was instrumental in persuading independent MPs to join the Imran Khan-led party following the 2018 elections despite being disqualified and remaining a PTI member. His efforts were crucial in helping Khan win the position of prime minister in 2018.
However, after taking office, Aleem Khan, Tareen, and the PTI’s relationship with the party deteriorated.
The former prime minister explained his issues with both leaders in May 2022 and said that they both wanted “illegal benefits from him.”
Speaking on a podcast, Khan asserted that their conflicts arose from his refusal to comply with their wishes.
Aleem Khan expected me to legalise his 300-acre property next to Ravi, according to Khan, who continued, “from that point on, I had disagreements with him.”
