Imran Khan calls on Jahangir Tareen ahead of PTI core committee meeting today
ISLAMABAD: Concluding his four-day visit of Karachi, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Saturday called on party’s disqualified MNA Jahangir Tareen at his residence here.
The meeting between the two senior PTI leaders held before the party’s core committee meeting due today, which is to decide whether or not to file a review petition in Jahangir Tareen’s disqualification judgment.
On Friday, the Supreme Court announced its much-awaited verdict, rejecting plea to disqualify Imran Khan and declared PTI’s key party leader Jahangir Tareen disqualified on the petition filed by PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi.
Abbasi had filed the petition seeking disqualification of PTI chief and party’s secretary general Tareen for not disclosing their assets and ownership of the offshore companies.
Following his disqualification, Tareen vowed to continue working for Naya Pakistan. In a statement on his Twitter account, he said, “I worked sincerely with all my strength for the betterment of the PTI and Pakistan. I am proud that all allegations of financial wrongdoing were thrown out. I will continue to stand tall and keep working for a Naya Pakistan.”
The PTI chief said Tareen was disqualified for technical reasons and the party would file petition seeking review of the disqualification verdict.
