Jahangir Tareen, son return to Pakistan after seven months
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen has returned to Pakistan, from England, on Friday after seven months. He reached Lahore via Dubai on a private airline.
The PTI leader talked to media at the Allama Iqbal International Airport and maintained that he goes abroad annually for medical treatment. The opposition only levels allegations and I don’t consider it worthwhile to respond, he added.
The PTI leader, who has been criticised heavily by the Opposition over his involvement in sugar scandal, said that it’s their job to hurl allegations and that he does not feel that there is a need to reply to them.
“Thanks to the Almighty all my business is clean,” he asserted.
Hours after his arrival, Tareen clarified in a tweet that his company, JDW Sugar Mills, was not part of any petition against the Punjab government’s decision to commence sugar crushing on November 10.
“All my mills, including those in Sindh, will start crushing on the 10th,” he asserted. “[I] will play my part in helping the government overcome [the] sugar shortage and price hike.”
Let me state for the record that JDW is NOT part of the petition against GOPb notification to start sugar Mills on 10th Nov. All of my mills, including those in Sind will start crushing on 10th. Will play my part in helping the Govt overcome the sugar shortage and price hike— Jahangir Khan Tareen (@JahangirKTareen) November 6, 2020
Tareen had reached London around seven months ago and has since been holed up in his Hampshire country home.
He had left Pakistan in a chartered plane immediately after the publication of the Sugar Commission report
