Estranged PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen to form a new political party? Social media reacts!

According to details, JKT has formed a new group.

The sugar inquiry commission report formulated last year highlighted the involvement of the PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen(JKT) in the sugar crisis. JKT said:

Not one, not two, but three FIRs have been registered against me. Out of the 80 sugar mill owners, all they could see was Jahangir Tareen. All my accounts as well as those belonging to my son, Ali Tareen, have been frozen. Why have my accounts been frozen? Who is doing this? Who benefits from this? Why am I being subjected to “revenge”?

He further added:

An inquiry against me, relating to the sugar crisis, has been going on for the last 12 months. I am asking for justice from PTI. I am a friend, but I am being pushed towards enmity.

Following the sugar crisis probe, the friendship between Jahangir Khan Tareen and Imran Khan ended with JKT leaving for London and returning with rumours that he was leaving the party.

The Formation of a New Party

Jahangir Khan Tareen hosted a dinner at his residence on Tuesday night and called the gathering ‘a group of like-minded people’. According to details, JKT has formed a new group. The newly formed group has appointed PTI’s Raja Riaz as Parliamentary Leader in the National Assembly while PML-N’s Saeed Akbar Nawani has been appointed leader in the Punjab Assembly.

According to PTI’s Nazir Chohan, the new JKT party has eight members of the National Assembly and 32 members of the Provincial Assembly. The names of the members of the ‘like-minded’ group have not been revealed yet.

Chohan further shared:

The whole group will resign if any of their members are disqualified from the PTI.

PTI’s Reaction to the New Party

A few hours after the news of the formation of the new party broke, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s close aide, Senator Faisal Javed Khan took to Twitter to state:

Imran Khan is PTI and PTI is Imran Khan.

The tweet started speculation on social media. Many argued that the tweet refers to the official breakup of Jahangir Khan Tareen and Prime Minister Imran Khan and signals the formation of a new political party.
