Report  Web Desk : Islamabad: A member of the full bench hearing disqualification petition against Jahangir Tareen has observed that Tareen did not declare his complete income and sources of income. A three members bench headed by Justice Mian Saqib Nisar heard the petition filed by PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi seeking disqualification of Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Secretary General Jahangir Tareen as member of National Assembly. The bench again raised question in discrepancy in Tareen income declared in nomination papers and show in FBR tax returns. During the course of hearing, Tareen’s counsel Sikandar Bashir Mohmand argued that there was confusion in Punjab Agriculture Tax. He added that the land owner also paid the agri tax on a leased out land so how a person farming on the leased out land would pay agri tax. He added that double agriculture tax on same land was not paid. 02
