Jahangir Tareen remains in his Hampshire country home after leaving Pakistan on a chartered plane – immediately after the publication of Sugar Commission report.
The former PTI General Secretary and business magnate left Pakistan after the Sugar Commission report was made public by the PTI government.
Since he left Pakistan there were many speculations that Tareen has meetings with Sharifs or other like-minded political personalities in the aftermath of ‘ill-treatment towards’ him by the PM Imran Khan.
However, he denied any such rumours and said that he was in London for having a routine medical check-up.
Seeing media speculating about my trip to the UK. 😊— Jahangir Khan Tareen (@JahangirKTareen) June 5, 2020
Nothing to worry about. Since I recovered from my illness in 2014, I have to have regular biannual check ups with my Doctors in the UK.
IA will get a clean bill of health and be back soon.
since the start of the month of August, Tareen continues to use Twitter to show his appreciation for the PTI government’s different projects despite being at odds with the party.
Most recently he praised the opening of BRT project in Peshawar and congratulated KP CM Mahmood Khan and Transport Minister Taimur Jhagra.
Congratulations to CM Mahmud Khan and KP Govt for the upcoming opening of BRT.I know of the hard work that went into the final finishing of the project and the entire political and B’cratic team deserve kudos . People of Peshawar will enjoy quality public transportation Inshallah— Jahangir Khan Tareen (@JahangirKTareen) August 12, 2020
Well done Taimur Jhagra. Just shows what is possible with good political leadership working in tandem with supportive B’cracy 👍👍 https://t.co/I1gnFSvaE9— Jahangir Khan Tareen (@JahangirKTareen) August 15, 2020
Many in the PTI still think that Tareen has given his life to PTI and he remains loyal to his party despite the fact that relations between Prime Minister Imran Khan and Tareen are not cordial but Tareen has publicly slated a few bureaucrats and advisor for fuelling wrong perceptions about him.
Known for his acumen and sharp political skills, Tareen is credited by his allies and foes both for helping the PTI for several years when there was hardly anyone else around to do the heavy lifting.
He’s credited with spending his own money to help the party gain media mileage and to make inroads in other parties ahead of general elections two years ago.
