Jahangir Tareen’s son graduates from Oxford, announces return


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Tareen has completed his education from Oxford’s business school and announced returning to ‘Naya Pakistan’.

Jahangir Tareen’s son made the announcement on Twitter where he said, “After two years of readings, exams and monthly flights to Oxford, I have finally completed my Masters. Now that the wife is impressed (the reason I do most things in life), time to head back to Naya Pakistan and get some work done.”

Ali Tareen said his father couldn’t make it to the graduation ceremony and had to fly back to Pakistan ahead of the presidential elections scheduled on September 4. The PTI leadership had called up Jahangir Tareen to help their presidential candidate Arif Alvi to gain support by making contacts with other political parties.

“Missing @JahangirKTareen today at my business school graduation. He had flown to England to attend but was called back for the Presidential Election. Naya Pakistan 1-0 Beta,” Ali Tareen said in his earlier tweet.

Ali Tareen, who contested a by-election from Lodhran’s NA-154 after his father’s disqualification, is expected to contest in the by-polls. In February 2018, Ali was defeated by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Iqbal Shah, who later joined the PTI, by a margin of over 27,000 votes.

In June, he had excused himself from contesting the July 25 general elections owing to his educational commitments. Ali had said he considered himself ineligible for the party ticket for 2018 polls as he will not be able to give a 100 per cent during the election campaign.
