The political drama continues in the aftermath of Panama verdict in Pakistan. As if the bygone week was not overwhelming, the latest updates in the political scenario are enough to raise many concerns. After Naz Baloch, another member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaan (PTI) part ways with the party. MNA Ayesha Gulalai departs from the party after announcing her imminent decision during a press conference yesterday.
Ayesha Gulalai accuses Imran Khan over sending her inappropriate text messages
This is what she said during her press conference:
“We are respectful Pashtuns. Our dignities are under a threat as long as we are in PTI. Mr. Imran Khan just cannot control himself. It was October of 2013 when I started receiving ‘lewd’ text messages from him; you can check his BlackBerry smartphone. What those texts said cannot be tolerated by any individual who has a shred of self-respect in them. I have all the records of his text messages.”
To support her claim further, she tweeted this:

Her press conference took a toll on the social media – here are the imminent reactions:
Another educated woman exits the PTI. MNA Ayesha Gulalai's rebuke adds to the disquiet about a woman's place in the party. Not good https://t.co/2jJiIraLtV

Women are strength of Pakistan. PTI can't bring any change until they give due representation & respect to the women. #AyeshaGulalai

I'm not a PTI supporter, but whatever #AyeshaGulalai said is totally disgusting.
Cheap publicity isn't going to protect her from falling.

Whether her allegations stand to any truth or not, PTI and Imran Khan have a grave problem to deal with. We shall see how they would react to it and see it past. Not ruling out the credibility of Ayesha Gulalai over her claim; it could be true and it could be not either. What do you guys think about it? Share your opinions.
