LAHORE – Former secretary general of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Jehangir Khan Tareen lands in yet another trouble.
A petition has been filed against him for chairing meetings in the prime minister’s secretariat while ignoring the country’s top court orders following his disqualification.
In his petition, Ch Shoaib Saleem contended that Tareen was disqualified for life by the Supreme Court but he not only attended important sessions at the Prime Minister House but also issued directives to the relevant authorities. He has asked the Lahore High Court to bar Tareen from chairing the government sessions in the light of SC orders.
The disqualified former parliamentarian recently chaired a meeting of top government officials at the secretariat of the prime minister, revealed the official minutes of the meeting.
On Sept 13, Tareen convened a meeting of the Livestock Emergency Working Group that had been assigned to develop a concrete plan to deliver on the prime minister’s commitment to revamping the livestock sector under the ‘Uplift Agriculture and Conserve Water’ theme of the new government’s 100-day agenda. The next meeting of the working group has been called around mid-October.
