Islamabad: An estranged woman lawmaker of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Tuesday accused party chief Imran Khan of harassing women leaders in the party. Ayesha Gulalai, who hails from South Waziristan tribal region, in a press conference alleged that honour” of women affiliated with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was not safe.
She accused Imran Khan of sending “obscene text messages” to women leaders of the party. She refused to share the messages but said that they were so mean that nobody can tolerate them.
She also leveled charges of corruption against PTI government in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and its Chief Minister Pervez Khattak who she alleged was acting like mafia boss.
Gulalai was elected to the National Assembly on a reserved seat for women from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), and has been a staunch and vocal supporter of the PTI and Khan. She resigned from both her party membership and NA seat. She rejected reports that she was joining the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) of Nawaz Sharif but praised Sharif for respecting women.
