Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in his recent remarks, lambasted the Jahangir Tareen group within the PTI, questioning their trust and loyalty towards the premier.
In his statement, the Foreign Minister called out the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers that are supporting Jahangir Tareen.
“[They say] we are with you [the PTI] and then they say that they are not with us. Then they say Imran Khan is their leader. If that is so, then why the contradiction?” he asked.
“Imran Khan has said he is not out to get revenge,” said FM Qureshi.
He said that the sugar mafia has been blackmailing this government, adding that they threaten of turning the “majority into a minority”.
“I tell Imran Khan to take a stand,” Shah Mahmood added.
