Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen has returned to Pakistan, from England, on Friday after seven months. He reached Lahore via Dubai on a private airline. The PTI leader talked to media at the Allama Iqbal International Airport and maintained that he goes abroad annually for medical treatment. The opposition only levels allegations and I don’t consider it worthwhile to respond, he added. Jahangir Tareen stressed that all his businesses are transparent by the grace of Allah Almighty. The PTI leader had reached London around seven months ago immediately after the publication of the Sugar Commission report. Earlier, Jahangir Tareen spoke to a private TV channel and announced that he would return to Pakistan this month [November]. Tareen, one of the closest confidantes of Prime Minister Imran Khan, had said that he is in London due to ailment. In August, Jahangir Tareen said he was very happy and encouraged to hear Prime Minister Imran Khan’s words and the impression of not being friends with Imran Khan has also ended. Tareen said that he had a great relationship with PM Imran Khan and we struggled together. He said that only we know the depth of our relationship and I appreciate his feelings. Tareen said that we both have grieves that our relationship had reached this point and this is regretful, adding that we were together in political struggle, Panama case and judicial commission. “PM Imran Khan and I used to work together every day,” he said. He went on to say that the kind of relation I had with the prime minister, the misunderstandings will disappear. “I was the biggest supporter PM Imran’s vision and one has to wonder who benefited from the end of our relationship,” he said. “I believe that all this has happened because of the Sugar Inquiry Commission’s report,” he said and added the report is not right as strange allegations have been leveled in the report. He said the allegations have nothing to do with the hike in the price of sugar. He said: “It is strange that a commission was constituted to probe into the sugar price hike but the report did not mention why the price of sugar went up.” Speaking further on the sugar price hike, he said that whole sale and retail sector is not regulated in Pakistan and those who purchase stock do not mention their name on tax. “I would come out clean if transparent investigations were held on sugar crisis,” he added. The PTI leader said that the prime minister has also expressed his feelings to him. Imran Khan was told that I [Jahangir Tareen] was behind sugar crisis but I was not even involved in the decision to export sugar. “The decision to export sugar was taken under the leadership of Asad Omar,” he said adding that sugar is expensive in Pakistan due to high price of sugarcane. The PTI leader further said that commodity prices rise on the basis of supply and demand, adding that the government itself is storing more wheat. The government should release wheat in the market and the problem would be solved.
