“Jahangir Tareen has the Punjab government in his right pocket and the federal in his left pocket”, says Rana Sanaullah

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Punjab President Rana Sanaullah on Thursday said party leaders will deliberate every kind of possibility before reaching a decision if estranged PTI leader Jahangir Tareen contacts them to establish a possible alliance.

The move comes a day after the party demanded action against Tareen and others for their alleged role in the sugar scam. Speaking to the media outside court premises, the PML-N leader said that watching Tareen arrive for his hearing flanked with MNAs and MPAs by his side succinctly depicted that he has the Punjab government in his right pocket and the federal in his left pocket.

He added that Tareen, who enjoys support of many more parliamentarians, has hinted that he can overthrow the incumbent PTI-led government.

He clarified that PML-N had no contact with Tareen. “If Tareen contacts our party then a political decision will be reached after consulting and assessing every kind of possibilities.”

Sanaullah said the same procedure will apply even if PML-Q leader and current Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervez Elahi approaches PML-N with the required numbers to send the Imran Khan government packing.

The former provincial law minister highlighted that during Tareen’s bail hearing, he claimed that his business transactions were being used against him.
