The reason for disqualifying me was none other than to balance Nawaz Sharif’s decision. According to the details, Jahangir Tareen while talking on private TV program said that there was no justification for my disqualification, I was deliberately disqualified so that the decision of Nawaz Sharif could be balanced. My assets were declared. There was a money trail, all my assets were in the names of my children. He said that if I had fought harder against Nawaz Sharif, maybe. I would not have been disqualified, they would not have even filed a petition against me.
The journalist asked that no one told you that your disqualification was done to balance Nawaz Sharif’s decision, in response to which Jahangir Tareen said that these were the words on everyone’s tongue. The headline was the Balancing Act. Who played a role in disqualifying Jahangir Tareen? He had to play the role of the then Chief Justice.
This was not a bargain, if there was nothing against the two, the petition should have been dismissed. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen has claimed that the Sugar Inquiry Commission has not found anything against him. Jahangir Tareen has said that it is not possible for the entire industry to be wrong and the Commission of Inquiry to be right. Special Assistant for Accountability Shahzad Akbar has come up with his own method of sugar production cost. The commission had to check why the price of sugar went up. But nothing was said about it. “It’s a bad thing, I have nothing to do with it, I condemn it,” he said. Even in cricket, people gamble. If four people gamble outside the stadium, it is not the fault of the players.
