KARACHI: Senior Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Qamar Zaman Kaira on Tuesday warned that the serious allegations leveled by Ayesha Gulalai against Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan could backfire on her, if proved otherwise, ARY News reported.
He said if Gulalai or any other PTI activist received any demeaning messages in the past from any leader why she was silent till a day before. You hold the right for difference but going personal like this could not be understood, he said while talking during ARY News program Off The Record.
“I personally feel that it is a very unsuitable act to level such allegations for your personal gains. If you have any dispute with your leader you are free to leave your party. But, out of the blue you start ranting that women in the party have grievances against Imran. Such attacks are not in compliance with politics,” he said.
Kaira also said the seat of National Assembly she was still holding despite dissociating with her party was granted by the party.
On this occasion, Asad Umar said how much PTI respected women was evident from the fact that Shireen Mazari, a lady, was their chief whip in the National Assembly, the candidate they fielded on the seat vacated by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif Dr Yasmeen Rashid was a lady, and deputy speaker Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly was also a woman.
Addressing a press conference, Gulalai said that there are several reasons which led to the decision to leave PTI, one of which was indecent messages from Imran Khan and his cronies.
“Their standards are different, which people like us cannot meet,” she said.
