Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi demanded on Wednesday a probe into Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief’s Blackberry data to confirm MNA Ayesha Gulalai’s harassment allegations against him.
“I salute Ayesha Gulalai for taking a stand and showing such courage to expose him [Imran Khan] and others in his party,” he told reporters.
Gulalai, a lawmaker from South Waziristan, had quit the PTI on Tuesday claiming that the women affiliated with the party faced constant harassment from within the party ranks. She alleged that women working with the party received obscene text messages, and she could not put up with this any longer.
Abbasi said the record of the Blackberry allegedly used to send lewd text messages to Gulalai must be investigated.
“I had revealed what Ayesha has just confirmed now around one and a half years ago,” the PML-N leader maintained.
“I had requested people to not send their sisters and daughters to PTI rallies to save them from this man [Imran Khan],” he added.
The PML-N leader said if Gulalai’s allegations were not investigated, it would be the death of justice.
He added that the PTI chief should be ashamed of his action and should respond to the allegations.
“You [Imran Khan] have already been found no longer eligible to be a lawmaker under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution for being dishonest,” he remarked.
“Now you’ll be disqualified under Articles 64, 65, 66 too.”
Abbasi also said Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rashid should refrain from using inappropriate words.
Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and other leaders of his party too have called for an investigation into the harassment accusations against Khan.
