Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), leader Pervez Khattak denied having ever seen the head of the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP), hours after rumors were spread that he would be collaborating with Jahangir Tareen in his new political endeavor.

He further stated that he had not been given the position of secretary general by Tareen’s party and had not accepted any such offer. “I am at home and in contact with my provincial colleagues.”

“I have had no meeting with Jahangir Tareen. At this time, I do not wish to speak on any political matters,” the former defense minister told local media.

Khattak is most likely going to become the IPP’s secretary general, according to rumors.

The change occurred two weeks after Khattak had a press conference in which he announced his resignation as president of the PTI’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter. The PTI leader’s aide, however, called the rumors that he was leaving the previous party “propaganda” and dismissed them.

Jahangir Tareen, a former close aide of PTI Chairman Imran Khan and a crucial player in the party’s election victory in 2018, officially formed his new party on Thursday. He stated that he got into politics to play a part in improving the nation.
