ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen said that he would be grateful if the government spokespersons acknowledged the farmer compensation figures from 2017-18. Responding to the press conference of Special Assistant to PM on Accountability Shahzad Akbar, Jahangir Tareen said that he was the only sugar mill owner who paid the full price of sugarcane to the farmers during 2017-18 season. In a statement released on social networking site Twitter, Jahangir Tareen retweeted the prime minister’s tweet dated October 12, 2017. Imran Khan had said in his tweet that Jahangir Tareen is the only mill owner who paid full price of sugarcane to farmers while the Shahbaz Sharif government had allowed mill owners to pay whatever they wished to the farmers.
