As expected, Jahangir Khan Tareen formally launched ‘Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party’ on Thursday.

Speaking at a press conference in Lahore flanked by former PTI leaders Aleem Khan and Imran Ismail, Khan said that after consultation with like-minded politicians, they decided to launch their own party to put Pakistan on the path of development.

They condemned the riots and violent protests on May 9.

He said that he along with the party leaders, tried to bring reforms from the PTI’s platform. However, they could not work towards the development of the masses.

Party leader Aleem Khan also spoke to the media as he said that Pakistanis are aggrieved by the current situation of the country, especially after the May 9 riots.

“We held discussion and consultation with the like-minded political leaders and came to a result that we will struggle for the betterment of the country by forming a new political party,” he added.

The new party’s members are likely to include former governor of Sindh Imran Ismail along with former members of PTI Ali Haider Zaidi, Fidous Ashiq Awan, Murad Raas Fayyazul Hasan Chohan, Hashim Dogar, Jay Prakash, and Aamir Kiani among others.

Among other politicians who are believed to join the new political party are Abdul Aleem Khan, Awn Chaudhry, and Nauman Langrial.

The political leaders expressed their full confidence in the leadership of Tareen.

Tareen, who has been disqualified for life from the Supreme Court, has become active following the May 9 riots and the fallout from it.

On May 9, PTI Chairman Imran Khan was arrested from the premises of the Islamabad High Court. Following Khan’s detention, his supporters took to the streets and attacked important military installations including the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi and the Lahore Corps Commander’s House, commonly known as the Jinnah House.
