Here comes an entry of an alleged big financer of PTI rallies, Aleem Khan, in a different way. No more he is a friend of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
A million dollar question is whether he will support the opposition’s no-confidence motion against Khan or not.
Aleem announced joining hands with disgruntled PTI big gun Jahangir Tareen apparently to teach a lesson to Khan who used to ditch his friends.
Talking to reporters after he met with over two dozen PTI lawmakers from the group of Tareen, Aleem Khan said Tareen had played a massive part in the PTI’s rise to power.
“This group held a meeting to send the message that Tareen is not forgotten. Tareen had played a crucial role in the history of the party, and lamented the fact that he was later sidelined.” Aleem did not commit support for PM Khan when asked where he and his group would go in case no trust move is present against Khan in the parliament.
There are many chances that the government may unleash National Accountability Bureau at Aleem who had already undergone NAB jail in assets beyond means case. He is currently on bail and it may be re-opened if he remained persistent to support the opposition move.
Now the ATMs, Jahangir Tareen n Aleem Khan will become noble souls for opposition? Isn’t it utter nonsense and betrayal of the hardcore supporters. The entire political saga is in fact a never ending circus, and the same characters play different roles to befool the audience.— Azhar M Khan (@AzharMKhan3) March 7, 2022

Saleem Safi says on @shazbkhanzdaGEO's that IK had been trying to convince Aleem Khan for days to not publicly support Jehangir Tareen group.None of those efforts bore fruit. He says the group has decided to vote against IK in a vote of no confidence motion. Anti IK coalition💪— Omer Azhar (@OmerAzhar96) March 7, 2022
Aleem Khan has joined Jahangir Khan Tareen's PTI faction with the aim to "save" the party after "loyalists were sidelined" following Prime Minister Imran Khan's rise to power. #Aww https://t.co/q2NXbcK6Uk— Dr Humma Saif (@HummaSaif) March 7, 2022
Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan were instrumental in bringing PTI to power and soon fell prey to palace intrigue and sidelined. Now, it’s political payback time.— Salman Masood (@salmanmasood) March 7, 2022
