Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fauzia Kasuri announced on Wednesday that she was leaving her party, Express News reported.

Kasuri, while addressing a press conference in Islamabad, claimed that Imran Khan has been cornered by the “mafia”.

The disgruntled former PTI leader was in talks with the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) as to how and when she should join the party. Kasuri, fourth in PTI’s pecking order of women candidates for reserved seats in the National Assembly, could not get a place in the lower house.

Nomination tickets for reserved seats for women in the National Assembly were given based on relations instead of merit, Kasuri claimed.

She also called out the party for giving a ticket to PTI leader Hamid Khan, despite him having dual nationality.

Kasuri added that she has been contacted by PML-N, Jamaat-e-Islami, and Tahirul Qadri.

I have not seen a person give 17 beautiful years of her life to an idealogy, and when she quits workers allege her of hungry of just a seat.

No there must be reasons far serious as Ms.fouzia mentions. PTians please show that you have some humanity and PTI's and its members' reaction will make any one wishing to join it think hundred times before a final decision.

Imran Khan... You and PTI both are lucky,, Fouzia Kausari left,, thanks GOD.. she was a black sheep ,, I realized this when she visited USA couple of months ago for fund raising movement. After meeting with her I felt she is not a sincere person... Imran Khan we are with you ,, I am glad she is gone,, we don't need only true Pakistani... Javed
