In a big setback to PTI, dejected Jehangir Treen with family leaves for London
LONDON: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen along with his family left for London on Thursday after he was disgruntled with the division of tickets among party members in southern Punjab to contest General Election 2018.
According to sources, tickets were taken back from the electables recommended by Tareen.
Speaking to Geo News on the matter, the disgruntled party leader said that the decision to award tickets to Niazi group was a bad one.
When inquired about the reason to leave right ahead of election, he said that he went to London on account of being unwell.
Tareen said that if doctors allowed him then he will return to the country on Sunday.
On the subject of party tickets, PTI Spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said that neither Tareen nor Qureshi are involved in giving party ticket to the group.
Imran himself decides about the distribution of tickets, said Fawad, adding that the party’s position is strong in southern Punjab.
