Never gave a penny for Bani Gala expenses: Jahangir Tareen

Never gave a penny for Bani Gala expenses:Jahangir Tareen

Disgruntled PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen Wednesday rubbished the claims that he used to bear the household expenses of now-Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying, he never gave a penny for the purpose.
His statement comes after former PTI member Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed claimed in an interview with a private news channel that Tareen used to pay up to Rs5 million per month to run Imran Khan’s household.
“Regardless of the current status of my relationship with Imran khan, the truth must be told,” Tareen said in a tweet.

“I did whatever was in my capacity to help PTI in the quest to build a new Pakistan but I never gave a penny for the household expenses of Bani Gala. Just want to set the record straight,” he added.
“The belief that Imran Khan is a financially honest man is completely flawed,” Ahmed, who resigned from the ruling party five years ago, claimed. “He [PM] hasn’t even been running his own house.”
The retired judge recalled that the Jahangir Tareen group used to Pay Rs3 million to run the premier’s house. “The amount was later increased to Rs5 million.
He added that “certain people” in the party competed in doing “favours” for the prime minister such as “keeping his car’s fuel tank full at all times”.
Countering Ahmed’s claims, Tareen said, “Regardless of the current status of my relationship with Imran khan, the truth must be told. I did whatever was in my capacity to help PTI in the quest to build a new Pakistan but I never gave a penny for the household expenses of Bani Gala.”
The retired judge’s comments were bashed by Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Political Communication Dr Shahbaz Gill as well. He called them “false and illogical”.
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry called the former PTI leader a “buffoon”.
