Ayesha Gulalai enters NA wearing tribal turban, says fighting ‘mafia’ alone


ISLAMABAD: Former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA Ayesha Gulalai said on Thursday that she is alone fighting a political party which is a mafia, in an apparent reference to her former political affiliation to Imran Khan's party.

The lawmaker, who recently leveled serious allegations against PTI Chairman Imran after a fiery departure from the party, entered into the National Assembly session today wearing a traditional tribal turban.

Following the session, Gulalai spoke to Geo News and said that she is in the right and will stay determined.

“For fighting men, a woman has to impersonate Razia Sultana,” she commented.

She said that the PTI chairman is jealous of talent of youngsters.

In an earlier session, Ayesha Gulalai had addressed the House and said she would not resign from her seat in the assembly. She had continued to deliver her address amid ruckus created from the PTI benches.

The allegations

Earlier this month, Gulalai claimed Imran had sent inappropriate text messages to her and hinted at tying the knot.

She claimed to have informed her father that the party chief had asked her to meet him alone but she took her father and brother along with her to meet the PTI chief, which irked him.

Gulalai also said her father asked Imran about his intentions but he dodged the question.

"I am ready to sit in front of Imran and can confront him on the obnoxious messages that he sent. He put me through mental torture and pain," explained Gulalai.

As per Gulalai, Khan first sent inappropriate messages to her in 2013.
