Islamabad (August 1, 2017): The Member National Assembly of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Ayesha Gulalai has decided to quit PTI. She has blamed that there is no respect for women in party ranks.

According to the details, PTI MNA Ayesha Gulalai has announced that she will quit the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) on Tuesday. The announcement has come moments ahead of the prime ministerial election in National Assembly.

Ayesha has said that she would abdicate PTI’s membership and resign from her National Assembly seat.

Gulalai, who hails from South Waziristan, is the first female MNA from restive tribal areas. She has been pretty active within and outside the parliament.

Gulalai cited ill-treatment of women in the party as the reason for her decision. She said that she had conveyed her grievances to the party leadership but no action was taken, forcing her to take the decision.

“Women workers are not valued in the PTI,” Gulalai said, adding that she will not be voting for Sheikh Rashid in the prime minister election in National Assembly on Tuesday.

Ayesha, who remained absent from the Assembly today to cast crucial vote for the election of the new prime minister scheduled at 3 p.m., said that she has left PTI because women get no respect in the party.

Saying that she would not have voted for PTI’s candidate for prime minister even if she had been present in the Assembly,  Ayesha added that she would announce her plans and future course of action soon.

PTI is fast turning a party of corrupt people which is being joined by corrupts of the other parties. Women’s honor are not safe from Imran Khan and his close colleagues. Nothing worth more to a Pakhtun than his honor which is just not safe in PTI, she alleged.Nothing has changed in Khyber Pakhtwankhwa province and corruption is on the peak there, PTI is in the control of helicopterwallas, she said adding that she would make further big disclosures at a press conference tomorrow.

Meanwhile, senior vice president of PMLN Ameer Muqam has invited Ayesha to join his party. I have extended the invitation to Ayesha and will meet in in a day or two, he added. He also claimed that many more PTI members of parliament will be joining PMLN soon.

Gulalai, who was elected to the National Assembly on a reserved seat for women, has been a staunch and vocal supporter of the PTI and Imran Khan and often featured in prime time talk shows to defend party policies.

“MNA Ayesha Gulalai’s rebuke adds to the disquiet about a woman’s place in the party,” PPP Senator Sherry Rehman said in a tweet.
