Soon after taking oath as the new chief minister of Punjab, Hamza Shehbaz on Saturday called on estranged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen and thanked him for his political support.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader met Tareen at his residence in Model Town, Express News reported.

Hamza, the report added, also inquired Tareen about his health and wished him well.

Speaking on the occasion, he told Tareen that he wished to work together to put the province back on the path of progress.

He also made it clear that he had intended to take the path of tolerance and patience instead of revenge.

The dissident PTI leader felicitated Hamza on his oath-taking for the coveted post.
