The estranged leader of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Jahangir Tareen has said that “an airplane can go in every direction.”

A video of the rhetoric of the former PTI stalwart had been circling the social media in which he can be seen standing beside PML-N leader Ayaz Sadiq on Friday at a dinner reception the night prior hosted by Khawaja Saad Rafique on the occasion of his daughter’s wedding.

When asked by a reporter to comment on his presence at the event, given the rivalry between the PTI and the PML-N, Tareen said he had been an old friend of Rafique, and their friendship would never end.

The reporter then asked whether “the plane” — a euphemism for Tareen himself — will ever switch its trajectory to “this direction” — a reference to the PML-N, given the gathering he was in. This prompted laughter from Tareen.

Sadiq interjected to tell the reporter: “Why do you think he is smiling?”

When Tareen finally responded, he was still all smiles, and said: “The thing is, I am here to attend a wedding, to share in the joy of this occasion. We will see what happens next.”

The reporter persisted, asking again: “But can the plane ever change directions?”

At this, Tareen, while walking ahead in a bid to get away, chuckled and said: “A plane can go in every direction.”

Sadiq, standing right beside Tareen, said to the reporter once more: “He [Tareen] is smiling.”

The reporter then turned his attention to Sadiq, asking: “Ayaz bhai, do you wish for him to continue smiling like this? What do you wish for?”

The PML-N leader said that it will be good for the country “if everyone continues to smile with the exception of Imran Khan”.
