After the dinner, Zawar Warraich and Nauman Langrial spoke to the media where they said Jahangir Tareen is an asset and no injustice whatsoever must be done to him.
It was asserted in the dinner that a letter would be written to the Prime Minister asking him for a meeting and his special attention to this case.
“Whatever is happening with Tareen is really unjust and we all have gathered here in a show of solidarity,” Waraich said.
He said that there were more than 80 sugar mill owners but cases are “only targetting Jahangir Tareen”.
