PTI's Seema Zia takes u-turn, apologises for remarks against Jahangir Tareen
KARACHI - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Dr Seema Zia on Thursday said party leader Jahangir Tareen was "rightly disqualified" but later apologised for her remarks.

She asserted: "He was rightly disqualified and whoever is involved in corrupt practices should be punished."

The PTI MPA’s statement came a day after the Supreme Court (SC) upheld its December 2017 decision of disqualifying Tareen for life.

A day earlier, SC dismissed a review petition filed by the PTI leader challenging the verdict that declared him unfit to hold public office.

Seema Zia apologises for remarks

However, speaking to the media outside the provincial assembly, Zia apologised for her comments against the fellow Tehreek-e-Insaf leader. “I highly respect Jahangir Tareen and he has done a lot for the party and it is owing to his sacrifices that the PTI is where it is today,” she said.
