–Disgruntled PTI MNA says ‘it’s unfair to talk against judiciary and army as it amounts to treason’
ISLAMABAD: Disgruntled Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Ayesha Gulalai on Friday claimed that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had offered her a Senate ticket on the condition that she starts criticising the state institutions.
Talking to reporters outside Parliament House, Gulalai claimed that she will disclose the name of the PML-N member who made the offer at a later date.
Gulalai, who hails from South Waziristan, said it is unfair to talk against the judiciary and army ‘as it amounts to treason’.
“Nawaz is more dangerous than Imran,” she added.
Taking a jibe at Nawaz’s daughter Maryam, Gulalai wondered “what kind of public politics is this when Maryam lands in Mansehra on a helicopter”.
Talking about South Punjab, the PTI MNA said there has been no development in the region as all the funds are being spent in Lahore. She added that she supports the region’s demands for a separate province after looking at the conditions there.
PML-N DID NOT FULFILL PROMISE MADE TO GULALAI:
Commenting on Gulalai’s claim, PTI Spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said that the PML-N took advantage of Ayesha Gulalai after the Panama case verdict on July 28, 2017.
The PTI spokesman said that it seems that the PML-N did not fulfill its promises made to Gulalai. Chaudhry further claimed that running a defamation campaign against political opponents is PML-N’s patent move. The ruling party also ran a campaign maligning Imran Khan back in 1996, he added.
Defamation campaigns were also run against Benazir Bhutto and Nusrat Bhutto, said the PTI spokesman.
