A former woman lawmaker of Pakistan's Tehreek-e-Insaf on Tuesday accused party chief and former cricket captain Imran Khan of sending obscene text messages and harassing women leaders in the party. Ayesha Gulalai, who hails from South Waziristan tribal region, in a press conference alleged that the honour of women affiliated with the PTI was not safe.

Announcing her decision to quit the party, she said, My integrity matters to me the most and I cannot compromise when it comes to my honour and dignity. She also accused 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.

Taking a jibe at Khan, she said he suffered from psychological problems and gets jealous of, people who are better than him. 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.

No matter what the charges against him but Nawaz Sharif knows how to respect women, she said. Rejecting the allegations, PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said that Gulalai had sold her soul to PMLN for money. -- PTI
