A woman who yesterday quit the cricketer turned politician party Imran khan’s party accused him of harassing female party members and sending indecent text messages.
Other party members dismissed these allegations against Imran, saying the woman was disgruntled because she was denied a ticket for elections.
They also said that she was planning to join the party of disgraced former prime minister Nawaz Sharif .
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf lawmaker Ayesha Gulalai said, “She quits the party because of “ill- treatment”. She also claimed that Imran’s conduct was “highly indecent” and since October 2013 she has been receiving indecent text messages.”
When asked about alleged indecent text messages, Gulalai said, “No one with any honour will be able to stomach the sort of language used.”
“Maybe they think Pakistan is England. At this age, you [Imran] have not been able to reform your habits, maybe you do not have control over your behaviour,” Gulalai added.
“Women workers are not respected in the PTI and a respectable woman worker cannot remain in the party,” Gulalai told.
“…the honour of mothers and sisters was not safe because of Chairman Imran Khan, whom she dubbed as a fake Pathan and a characterless person,” she quoted.
The lawmaker also accused Imran of being insecure.
“I think Imran Khan has issues because he is jealous of talented people. He thinks they are a threat. Because of this, many men run from him. He has other methods with women,” Gulalai alleged.
She said she wants the country’s supreme court to look into her complaints about Imran.
In the meanwhile, senior PTI member Shireen Mazari said Gulalai was making such allegations because she disgruntled.
Mazari said , “Imran always treated women with respect and no investigation needed against him.”
She said certain people had used Gulalai to level baseless allegations against Khan.
