Jahangir Tareen has responded to Wajihuddin’s allegations on Wednesday.

Former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member, Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed, had claimed that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan’s monthly household expenses were once catered by PTI’s disgruntled leader Jahangir Tareen.

Jahangir Tareen used to pay up to Rs5 million to run Imran Khan’s house, alleged Wajihuddin.

Tareen took to Twitter to set the records straight.

“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. Just want to set the record straight,” he tweeted.

Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed made the claims while speaking on Bol news’ programme ‘Tabdeeli’.

“This belief is entirely false that Imran Khan is an [financially] honest man,” Ahmed said. “His condition is such that he hasn’t been running his household himself for years.”

“In the start, the Jahangir Tareen group used to pay Rs3 million monthly to run his house,” he alleged, adding that the amount was later increased to Rs5m after it was determined that Rs3m were not enough for the PTI chief’s palatial Banigala residence.

On the other hand, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Political Communication Dr. Shahbaz Gill rubbished Ahmed’s claim as “completely false and illogical”.

“Whoever knows Imran Khan, knows his honesty and dignity. Wajih sahib often makes illogical remarks such as these in despair over being expelled from the party,” he said in a tweet.
