PTI workers boycott conference in London, Reham leaves without speaking


As news of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Chairman (PTI) Imran Khan’s marriage dissolution spread like wildfire, PTI workers on Saturday boycotted a party press conference held in London. Attendance of PTI workers remained negligible as majority avoided the meeting. Khan’s former wife Reham Khan refused to address the conference and left the meeting venue.

According to the details, the conference was also boycotted by the party’s local leaders. The main sponsors of the conference also withdrew their sponsorship after observing the scanty attendance.

Allegedly, arrangements had been made to accommodate 500 people but only 100 participants showed up at the event.

Revealing the reason behind her much hyped divorce with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan, Reham Khan reportedly told a TV journalist through a text message that she had parted ways with the cricketer-turned politician for a ‘grander cause’.

“Lies were being told about me and my children… Painful, appalling, and insufferable lies,” Reham Khan reportedly said in the text message. She said those prevarications had also started affecting the PTI chief’s politics.

“Those falsehoods were proving to be hurdles in the way of Khan’s mission. So I decided to remove myself from his life gracefully,” Reham said.

Khan, 62, married 42-year-old Reham Khan, a former BBC weather host and a divorced mother of three, in January this year in a simple ceremony at his Islamabad home.
