She added that Imran shouldn?t lead the youth into mentally serving the British. With regards to the formation of a parliamentary committee to probe her allegations, Gulalai said Imran first welcomed the committee but then backtracked. ?Imran has now demanded a commission akin to those in Britain,? she argued. Will not resign from seat, says Gulalai amid ruckus during NA address Gave voice to weak women and never compromised over integrity, says Gulalai Gulalai said Britain has its own traditions, culture and that decisions taken in Pakistan will be as per our Constitution. I, alongside fellow Pakistanis, have full faith in the Constitution, shared Gulalai. Continuing her critique of Imran, Gulalai said he should explain why he does not trust our Constitution. ?Imran says he will deliberate before giving election tickets to women,? she said, adding that Imran shouldn?t give tickets to decent, educated people in the future as they can be dangerous to him. ?Won?t resign from National Assembly? Gulalai, who is still a member of the National Assembly from the PTI ticket, said last Monday that she will not resign from her seat, amid a ruckus from the PTI members.

She claimed to have informed her father that the party chief had asked her to meet him alone but she took her father and brother along with her to meet the PTI chief, which irked him. Gulalai also said her father asked Imran about his intentions but he dodged the question. "I am ready to sit in front of Imran and can confront him on the obnoxious messages that he sent. He put me through mental torture and pain," explained Gulalai. As per Gulalai, Khan first sent inappropriate messages to her in 2013.

  15. PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday ended its alliance with Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government alleging it of not supporting PTI's stance on Panamagate issue. After breaking of the alliance, two QWP ministers, Sikandar Sherpao and Aneesa Zaib, have stepped down. Two special assistants, Karim Khan and Arshad Khan, have also tendered their resignations. QWP chief Aftab Sherpao said driving his party out of the provincial government was a violation of a written agreement by the ruling Tehreek-e-Insaf. "Imran Khan is isolating himself and it appears that the PTI wants itself to be politically martyred." This is the second time that PTI ended its fragile alliance with QWP in four years. The PTI said its ally in the province didn't support its stance on Panama Papers case in the Supreme Court of Pakistan. In 2013, PTI chairman Imran Khan ended his party's alliance with QWP alleging two of its ministers of corruption. However, two years later in 2015, the QWP was again made part of the KP government with PTI's efforts. At that moment, a PTI delegation visited QWP's Bakht Bedar Khan and convinced him to withdraw his petition in the Peshawar High Court, which he had filed against the PTI chairman demanding him to prove his allegations against QWP.

Qureshi also questioned the tradition of dynastic politics and asked why only a member of the Sharif family is being nominated for the high office and is there was no other individual with in the PML-N suitable for the role. "Have our political parties not reached the level of maturity that we can move past our families when it comes to nominating individuals for high posts?" "We feel it would present problems if Shehbaz is selected prime minister. They have so many party members, is there no one else qualified for the position?" The PTI vice chairman also said the joint investigation report, submitted after the Model Town tragedy, should be made public by Shehbaz if he were to become prime minister as he was the chief minister at the time. Qureshi, addressing the press conference, also announced Dr Yasmeen Rashid as PTI's candidate to contest the NA-120 seat, previously held by Nawaz Sharif. "During our meeting today we discussed that NA-120 now stands vacated and we decided to nominate Dr Yasmeen Rashid as our candidate to contest the seat." 'Democracy strengthened' Qureshi said democracy has been strengthened after the Supreme Court verdict and it is not an international conspiracy as some PML-N leaders have claimed. "Democracy has been strengthened following the verdict. It is not a conspiracy against democracy. From the start we have been with the Constitution and democracy." He added that the conspiracy theory being peddled by PML-N has no truth to it as even Beijing and Washington has termed it as an internal matter and have no reservations regarding it. Referring to PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto's announcement that they will put forth a candidate for premiership of the country, Qureshi said that it would have been better if the PPP had reached out to opposition parties before making the call. He further said that Leader of Opposition Khursheed Shah had reached out to him on Friday and invited PTI to discuss future course of action.
