Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday criticising the Punjab lawmakers standing with Jahangir Tareen, said if they wished to stand with the prime minister then they should do so without hesitancy.

Speaking to PTI workers in New York the foreign minister lashed out the party’s lawmakers who are supporting Tareen.

“Imran Khan has said he is not out to get revenge,” said FM Qureshi.

He said that the sugar mafia has been blackmailing this government, adding that they threaten of turning the “majority into minority”.

“I tell Imran Khan to take a stand,” he added.

Two days back chief minister Usman Buzdar hosted a luncheon for the group. At lunch Buzdar assured members of the PTI lawmakers who are supporting Jahangir Tareen that he would address their concerns.
