Lahore: Former Punjab minister Aleem Khan has left for London to meet estranged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen amid rapidly evolving political situation of the country.

Aleem Khan, who joins the Tareen panel on Monday, will discuss the political situation in Punjab and the strategy to pack the current Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar.

Meanwhile, the Jahangir Tareen group officially decided on Tuesday that Usman Buzdar would not be accepted by the group.

In a talk with media after the meeting a member of Tareen group Nauman Langrial said that we have given Jahangir Tareen the authority to take all decisions. He also mentioned that they are in contact with different parties.

Meanwhile, several senior leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had also supported the idea of removing Sardar Usman Buzdar as Chief Minister of Punjab.

According to sources familiar with the development, key federal ministers including Pervez Khattak and Asad Umar while Governor Punjab Chaudhry Sarwar also threw his weight behind the proposal.
