Imran Khan accuses Aleem Khan and Jahangir Tareen of seeking illegal benefits

  • Imran Khan accuses Aleem Khan and Jahangir Khan Tareen of seeking illegal benefits.
  • “Aleem Khan expected me to legalise his 300-acre land near Ravi,” he says.
  • Ex-PM adds that issues with Jahangir Khan developed on sugar crisis.

ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan has exposed the source of his feud with former aides Aleem Khan and Jahangir Khan Tareen. Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf Chief Imran Khan accuses Aleem Khan and Jahangir Khan Tareen of seeking illegal benefits.

During a podcast a day earlier, the former premier disclosed that his refusal to grant those benefits caused friction with both estranged leaders.

“Aleem Khan expected me to legalise his 300-acre farm near Ravi,” Khan stated, adding, “from there, I developed differences with him.”

When asked about Jahangir Tareen, the PTI chairman responded that his issue was the sugar situation, which led to the formation of a commission.

“Tareen stood with those who are the biggest dacoits in the country. When I ordered a probe into the matter, differences developed with Tareen.”

He went on to saying that the benefactors of a corrupt system sit in institutions, and that there are people in our institutions who assist them.

“We could not legislate because there was no majority. We will come to power only if we get a majority in the Parliament,” he said.

Talking on the the relations with the United States, Khan said that the US has now found supporters in Pakistan. “80,000 of our people were killed in the US war [in the war on terror], and independent foreign policy does not mean I am anti-US.”

Criticising the present government, Imran Khan said that 60% of the people in the cabinet are currently on bail. “Shehbaz Sharif’s Rs16 billion corruption reference is an open and shut case. Sharif family is either on bail or convicted, they are now imposed on the nation.”

The PTI chief claimed that he has never attempted to influence the judiciary. He, on the other hand, lamented that the courts were not taking action against individuals who used Rs20-25 crores to overthrow the government.

Imran Khan further said that even if PTI lose the election, they will not give tickets to those who enter politics for personal gains. “Our system is such that money is spent in Senate elections. But Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son was spared after he was caught bribing lawmakers.”
