Former provincial president of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PT), Pervez Khattak, on Saturday denied reports of him joining the newly established political party of Jahangir Khan Tareen, Istehkam-e-Pakistan.

Dismissing reports of him meeting with Tareen, Khattak wrote, “I want to make it clear that I have no intention of affiliating with any other political party nor have I had any meetings with Jahangir Khan Tareen. The ongoing news circulating in the media about me is unfounded and completely false”.


Jahangir Khan Tareen, formally established the “Istehkam-e-Pakistan” political party on Thursday in Lahore. Former PTI leaders Imran Ismail, Aleem Khan and Ali Zaidi were also present at the press conference to announce the launch.

The party comprises more than 100 former National Assembly members and leaders of PTI.
Earlier this month, Khattak announced his decision to step down from his party position, hours after claims of him being detained, along with Asad Qasier, in Islamabad.
