Jahangir Tareen returns to Pakistan after 7 months
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir has returned to Pakistan from the UK after seven months.
Jahangir Tareen reached Lahore, Allama Iqbal Airport via Dubai. Talking briefly at the airport, he said he had gone out for treatment.
“I go out every year for treatment,” the PTI leader said. The job of the opposition is to make accusations, not to respond. Thank God my business is clean and transparent.
Jahangir Tareen had gone abroad after the government reported on the flour and sugar crisis.
The report revealed that government officials, including Jahangir Tareen’s sugar mills, had benefited.
According to Hum News, Jahangir Tareen earned Rs 560 million, Khusro Bakhtiar’s brother earned Rs 450 million and Monis Elahi Group earned Rs 400 million during the sugar crisis in the country.
Jahangir Tareen left for London a few weeks after the report came to light. Since then, the PTI government has also come under fire from opposition parties.
Jahangir Tareen had said in his tweet that according to the Sugar Inquiry report, I exported 12% sugar while my market share is 20%.
After the report was made public, rumors were circulating that Jahangir Tareen would not return.
The PTI leader had said that he was going abroad for treatment and would definitely return home.
Following the Sugar Commission of Inquiry report, Prime Minister Imran Khan had withdrawn from the post of Agriculture Task Force from Jahangir Tareen and directed a forensic audit of sugar mills allegedly involved in the Chinese crisis.
