Jahangir Tareen, the Opposition’s key player in the ‘no-confidence’ motion against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government, on Friday announced that he will reach Pakistan on Sunday, March 6, 2022.
Tareen is in London for his medical treatement.
PTI leader Muhammad Salman Naeem, who is a member of Punjab Assembly, said that he spoke to the estranged leader and inquired about his health, adding that his medical reports are all clear and that he is in good health now.
He further said that Jahangir Tareen will reach Pakistan on March 6, 2022, from the United Kingdom (UK) and will be present whenever the Opposition tables its ‘no-confidence’ motion against the Prime Minister (PM).
Earlier, Minister of Foreign Affairs Shah Mehmood Qureshi had said that Imran Khan had called Tareen to inquire about his health as well. “The Prime Minister was informed that Jahangir Tareen was unwell,” Qureshi had said.
According to the sources, Tareen spent a week in a private hospital in Lahore for medical treatment, adding that the PTI leader would spend a week in London.
“I am going for a medical checkup [but] we must stay united and in touch,” Tareen told lawmakers who have been sympathetic towards him.
It may be recalled that in 2020, after revelations in a Sugar Inquiry Commission report, investigations had been launched against Tareen, with the ties between the PTI leader and PM Imran Khan turning sour.
The following year, a separate group was formed by Tareen’s loyalists in the PTI, who have recently made contact with the Opposition as it seeks to oust the government.
The conversation between Jahangir Tareen and PM Imran Khan comes amid increasing activities of the Opposition, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) holding an “Awami March” and the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) bid to move a ‘no-confidence’ motion against the PM.
