Speaking to the media, Tareen said the verdict puts a big question mark on the credibility of the entire 2013 general elections.

Jahangir Khan Tareen was born on July 4, 1953 in Comilla, East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) to an ethnic Pashtun family of Tareen tribe. Jahangir Khan Tareen received his B.A degree from FC College University, Lahore in 1971 and M.B.A degree from University of North Carolina, U.S.A in 1974.

He has been a lecturer, a banker and an entrepreneur in the past and has chaired Punjab Task Force on Agriculture from 1997–99 and Punjab Task Force on Wheat Procurement and Marketing during 2001–02.

Political career

Pre 2002

Tareen was called into public service in 1997 as Chairman of the Punjab Task Force on Agriculture which addressed pressing issues pertaining to the agricultural sector by formulating and implementing innovative policies which left a lasting impact on the sector, most notable of which was the complete annihilation of agriculture pesticide adulteration in Punjab and the ‘One Window’ Agriculture Loaning Operation in which small farmers were able to obtain loans from the Agriculture Development Bank in one seamless operation. Mr Tareen created Crop Management committees to manage all aspects of the major crops and to bring all stakeholders on the same page in decision making. The Punjab Agriculture sector still continues to benefit from the initiatives and changes brought about at that time. He has served as Chairman Punjab Task Force on Wheat Procurement and Marketing and of the State Bank Committee on Rural Finance.

2002–07
Provincial politics
Tareen began his political career when he was elected Member of the National Assembly of Pakistan in the 2002 General elections. He worked as Advisor to the Chief Minister Punjab, on Agriculture and New Initiatives, a position especially created in the Chief Minister’s office for developing and implementing "out of the box" solutions for some of the many pressing problems of the province. In a successful two year stint, many significant new initiatives were taken and implemented, most notable amongst them were the Punjab Education Reforms Program, the RYK Model of Primary Health Care management through BHU’s and the new Punjab Industrial Policy.

National politics
Tareen was brought into the Federal Cabinet as the Minister of Industries, Production and Special Initiatives in August 2004. In three year as Cabinet Minister, Tareen was able to begin many new initiatives. An industrial Strategy was evolved and documented by a group of Pakistani Economists ably led by Dr. Ijaz Nabi. The moribund Pakistan Industrial Development Company (PIDC) was revitalised into an engine of change by creating multiple sector development companies, each with a complete sector development vision, strategy and implementation plan. A technology Upgradation Company (TUSDEC) was created as a public private partnership to work with key private sector entities to bridge the technology gap. This has led to the establishment of much needed Technology up gradation centres in Karachi and Gujranwala. The RYK model of managing Primary Health Care was spread across the whole country and into every province. A water channel lining project lined 50% of all watercourses in the country in the short span of three years. A Dairy development initiative led to the establishment of the PDDC or Pakistan Dairy Development Company mandated to work with small livestock owners to bring a quantum change in Dairy management.

Tareen is cognizant of the fact that while Pakistan must rapidly industrialise to provide the economic growth necessary for job creation and poverty alleviation, it must, at the same time, take direct Poverty Alleviation Initiatives so that the people of Pakistan share the fruits of economic growth as soon as possible. He also believes that, in order to be successful, the people of Pakistan must develop their skills so that they can realize their full potential. He is an advocate of sustainable development and encourages communities to adopt a participatory, self-help approach. Tareen’s commitment to the capacity building and strengthening of communities is reflected in the high degree of his involvement with community based initiatives such as the Lodhran Pilot Project, of which he is Chairman and Sponsor. He is also actively involved in the National Rural Support Programme as a Director. He has also served as Director of the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund and was a founder Member of the Governing Council of the Punjab Vocational Training Council (PVTC).


Post 2007
In 2008 general elections Khan was elected to the National Assembly again from Constituency NA-195 scoring over 80,000 votes compared to around 40,000 gained by the runner up. He became the parliamentary leader Pakistan Muslim League (F) but he later formed a forward block known as the "Jahangir Tareen's clean party" aimed to provide a third option in the electoral field. The party included 30 seasoned politicians Awais Leghari, Jamal Leghari, Sikander Bosan, Ghulam Sarwar Khan and Ishaq Khan Khakwani, Dr GG Jamal, Ghulam Sarwar Cheema, Senator Mohabbat Khan Marri, former Senator Saadia Abbasi and Abid Hassan. On 19 December 2011 his ‘Clean Party’ joined Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), since then Tareen has made a prominent place in his new party and a close association with Imran Khan, he also presented PTI's industrial plan. On 25 September 2013, Chairman Imran Khan appointed Jahangir Tareen as the Secretary General of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to replace the previous Secretary General Pervaiz Khattak who became the Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after the 2013 general elections in Pakistan.
