Imran Khan denies Gulalai's allegations in categorical response
LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has again firmly rejected the notion of being complacent or involved in any immoral role, regarding disgruntled PTI MNA Ayesha Gulalai’s accusations.
He has demanded that experts under the guidance of Parliamentary committee should handle the case for purpose of forensic audit. In a private television channel program, Khan commented on the allegations hurled against him, ‘It is a conspiracy of PML-N.
Ayesha Gulalai’s accusation of sexual harassment has dominated the political scene of Pakistan for the last few days. It has changed the political climate of the country after former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification.
The matter became serious when a message was tweeted from PTI’s Information Secretary, Naeem ul-Haque Twitter account, stating: Should I apologies for discussing marriage with Ayesha Gulalai? No, I don’t think so, nothing wrong with that.
A startled reaction of twittered followed. However, Shafqat Mehmood (PTI leader) claimed that the Twitter handle of Naeem ul-Haque was hacked and the message had no reality.
Broking the silence on Thursday, Imran Khan had said Sharif’s were behind the campaign to tarnish his reputation. He said that Gulalai had come to Bani Gala a day before she held a press conference (Sunday) and had asked for the NA-1 ticket. “I reprimanded her for her poor performance in the National Assembly (NA) and absence in the party meetings,” he maintained.
PTI has suspended Gulalai’s membership and demanded resignation of her National Assembly seat.
