BANNU: Adviser to Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister for Transport and Mass Transit Malik Shah Muhammad Khan Wazir has asked for a tribal jirga to demolish the house of MNA Ayesha Gulalai if she fails to prove harassment allegations against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan.

“We demand an unconditional apology from Ayesha Gulalai, otherwise her house will be demolished in line with tribal laws,” Wazir said while addressing a news conference at the Bannu Press Club on Thursday.

He also called upon the jirga to revoke Gulalai’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) domicile.

‘Lewd text messages’ to Ayesha Gulalai: Check Imran’s Blackberry data, demands PML-N

The PTI on Wednesday served the estranged MNA a show-cause notice and suspended her basic party membership just a day after disgruntled Gulalai claimed she was harassed by Imran and others.

The adviser termed the accusations against the party chairman as a “political suicide”.

“Gulalai was bribed by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz to malign Imran for his efforts against corruption as well as in the Panamagate case,” Wazir said.

The Supreme Court on July 28 disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif for hiding assets in his nomination papers for 2013 polls

Gulalai’s startling assertions had hurt the sentiments of tribal women, he added.

    Sheikh: Don’t expect changes over night, do you not understand this mentality is part of our nation thinking process for decades. You think it will be eradicated within 5 years? It will be a slow painful process. You should recognize and support the idea and one day you will see the change. peaceRecommend

    To be honest if false accusation leads to demolition of accused then Imran’s Bani Gala palace will have to be demolished multiple(hundred) times. He has been accusing everyone without any proof. He is rightly nicknamed Ilzaam(Accusation) KhanRecommend
