Independent candidates continue to flock in PTI camp, makes for meme-worthy content

Web Desk | (Muhammad Ali Azlan): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) senior leader Jahangir Khan Tareen has exhausted all options and left no stone unturned for Imran Khan to reach and meet a designated quota of seats required to form a centeral government with majority. His efforts to grab independents gained momentum as he transported at least four MPAs from South Punjab to Bani Gala in his jet, making of a true action spy-thriller with Jehangir Tareen piloting the covert operation.

He has been tasked to lure independent candidates from across the country to facilitate PTI in ensuring a government in Punjab and centre, enabling Imran to assume the charge of prime minister-ship for the first time.

The PTI senior leader’s hunt for independent candidates has certainly gotten the attention of not just political parties but also the social media users. Twitteratis were quick to give their own amusing take on his endless efforts to bait independent candidates.

Check out the hilarious responses and memes below:

On a serious note, Jahangir Tareen’s efforts are commendable as far as PTI and his leader’s future is concerned but will they bear a sweet fruit for the country if successful? Only time can tell.

Jehangir Tareen has been ruled ‘dishonest’ by the Supreme Court in a case pertaining to articles 62 and 63 of the constitution of Pakistan.

The bench found PTI secretary general Jahangir Tareen to be dishonest under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution and Section 99 of Representation of People Act (ROPA) on one count among the multiple charges brought against him.

Article 62(1)(f) — which sets the precondition for the head of government to be “sadiq and ameen” (truthful and honest) — had led to the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif from holding public office in the July 28 judgement on the Panama Papers case.
