Ayesha Gulalai who is sitting member of National Assembly on a reserve seat from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf, accused Imran khan and other party members of harassment and sending inappropriate text messages over the time of last 4 years. Imran khan was very surprised and conducted a press conference on August 3rd 2017. He said he was very astonished by Ayesha Gulalai’s behavior, because she was with him a day before her press conference. They met at Bani Galla for party meeting, and as per Imran Khan she asked him for the ticket of NA 1, which is very important jurisdiction in Peshawar, but PTI chairman Imran Khan refused to commit the seat for NA 1 to Ayesha Gulalai. Moreover he asked Ayesha about her absence in party meetings and very low attendance in National Assembly as well. Imran Khan is very strict about party discipline and he don’t like anybody not following party discipline. This incident was witnessed by Dunya TV anchor person Kamran Shahid who was there for one to one interview with Imran Khan, which he also mentioned during his talk show the very next day.
So for PTI leader Imran Khan and other members of the party they were very surprised about her behavior and Imran Khan also blamed PML(N) for this controversy. According to Imran Khan Ameer Muqam from PML(N) provoked Ayesha Gulalai and she agreed to conduct this press conference. Imran Khan claimed that he is very much relaxed and confident because he didn’t sent any inappropriate text messages to her, so she don’t have legitimate evidence against PTI chairman Imran Khan. Imran Khan further said that this has been a normal practice from PML(N) to attack their opponents on personal and moral issues. PML(N) has been doing this kind of dirty politics since 1988, so he is not so surprised that they are doing it again. But he feel sad about Ayesha Gulalai that she was tricked by PML(N), and has been used by them in their dirty politics just to save their own dignity that they lost after supreme court’s historic decision about Nawaz Sharif’s dismissal. Imran Khan further said he will face all the investigation forums in parliament or out of the parliament, but it has to be a fair and neutral trial.
Ayesha Gulalai refused to resign from the reserved seat given by PTI, and said claimed that this seat is given by the people of KPK and she work for them and she always stands for them, that’s why she will not resign from the seat rather she will retain the seat of National Assembly given by PTI on reserved cota.
