LAHORE: The group of lawmakers who have expressed loyalty to Jahangir Tareen have said that talks will proceed after the acceptance of the ‘minus-Buzdar’ formula by the government.

Speaking to the media in Lahore, Punjab MPA Nauman Langrial said that Tareen was currently in London and they have given him authority for taking the final decision.

Langrial said that the group was also being contacted by other political parties and they were updating Tareen about the developments. He said that an important meeting would be held tomorrow to take decisions regarding the group’s future under the current circumstances.

“Different political parties have contacted us and an important session of our group is going to be held tomorrow (Wednesday) to decide on the next strategy. The number of members in Jahangir Tareen group is at the third position in the Punjab Assembly,” he said.

Langrial said that Tareen group is agreed on proceeding talks on the basis of minus-Buzdar formula. “I want to make it clear that all members of the group are united on the stance that we will move forward on minus Buzdar,” he said.

He also refused to comment on whether Aleem Khan had been selected for the job, saying that the group was united under Tareen’s leadership. “Jahangir Tareen group is a strong alliance and it is like a family. All members of the group will agree on the decision of Jahangir Tareen.”

While concluding his press conference, he asserted that this was not a “rebellion”. “We are following a certain mandate and the people have certain expectations of us. We are not only thinking about the PTI, but also about the province.”

“We have brought forward a mandate. We are thinking best for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) while keeping in view of all outcomes,” said Langrial.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan Khan has rejected the demands of Tareen group after they demanded to replace Punjab CM Usman Buzdar.

Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry called on PM Imran Khan in Islamabad to convey the demands of the dissenting group. According to reports, the Tareen group wants replacement of Punjab CM Usman Buzdar which the prime minister refused.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed his support for Punjab chief minister (CM) Usman Buzdar and said it will not be easy to replace him.
