ISLAMABAD: Ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen has termed the report of the commission of inquiry into the Sugar crisis as a pack of lies.
Jahangir Tareen has said in his tweet that he will pay full tax and will prove himself true by answering all the allegations against him. I pay all my taxes honestly. The accusation against me of creating two types of business accounts is based on outright lies.
I am shocked at the kind of false allegations levelled against me. I have always run a clean business. All Pakistan knows I always pay full price to my growers. I DO NOT maintain 2 sets of Books. I pay all my taxes diligently. I will answer every allegation and be vindicated IA.— Jahangir Khan Tareen (@JahangirKTareen) May 21, 2020
He said that the whole of Pakistan knows that I pay the full price of sugarcane to my farmer. I have always done business honestly. I will pay full tax and answer all the allegations. The allegations made against me in the FIA report are full of lies.
It should be noted that the government has made public the report of the commission formed to investigate the crisis caused by sugar exports last year after a forensic audit. The report also names Jahangir Tareen as one of the beneficiaries of government subsidies on sugar exports, along with leaders of government allies and opposition parties.
