Jahangir Khan Tareen, the patron-in-chief of the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP), has voiced his frustration over what he perceives as an unjust disqualification, alleging interference from powerful entities.
In an interview on Nadeem Malik Live, Jahangir Tareen conveyed his contentment with the positive response received from his constituency, emphasizing his longstanding involvement in social work within the community.
Tareen underscored that his entry into politics had roots in a genuine desire to contribute to societal betterment. However, he lamented the lack of a justifiable cause for his disqualification, characterizing it as an unwarranted action coerced by influential figures. Despite this, Tareen expressed gratitude for what he termed the resolution of the disqualification saga, attributing it to the grace of Allah.
Delving into his association with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Tareen clarified that his decision to join the party was motivated solely by a commitment to the nation’s progress.
Yet, he openly expressed dismay over perceived changes in PTI founder Imran Khan’s behavior after assuming the role of prime minister. Tareen went on to express disbelief at actions taken against his family, actions that, according to him, were unimaginable.
As the IPP chief, Tareen continues to assert that his disqualification lacked merit, echoing a sentiment of coercion by influential quarters. His narrative suggests a complex interplay of political dynamics, personal commitment to community welfare, and his views on the trajectory of PTI’s leadership.
The resolution of his disqualification remains a significant chapter in his political journey, with Tareen navigating the intricacies of power dynamics within Pakistani politics.
