ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has filed disqualification reference against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Secretary General Jahangir Khan Tareen to Speaker National Assembly. The reference was submitted to Speaker NA in his chamber. In the reference, submitted by PML-N’s Talal Chaudhry, Daniyal Aziz and Maiza Hameed, accused Jahangir Tareen of hiding tax details and giving fake information in tax returns. PML-N has urged to take legal action against PTI leader as per article 63/2 of the Constitution.

Reacting on PML-N’s reference, Jahangir Tareen remarked, “I had not laughed for many days but now I openly did so over the reference.” He went on to state that the entire nation knows I am Pakistan’s forefront tax payer politician. He asserted that he would stand by Imran Khan despite all such fake references. “Whether I remain part of the assembly or not, Ehtesab Tehreek will continue,” he said and added he would take this campaign to its logical end with Imran Khan.
