The three-member Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, including Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Umar Ata Bandial, resumed hearing the disqualification case against Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan today.
Though she did not immediately elaborate on the reasons for quitting the party, sources said she was unhappy over the the PTI's decision to choose Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rashid as its candidate for the prime minister's slot.
Chairman Imran Khan supported the Article 62 and 63 in the constitution, adding that he will accept if the apex court disqualifies him in London flat case. "Women workers are not respected and treated well in the PTI and any respectable woman can not remain in the party", Ms. Gulalai told reporters at the Parliament House in Islamabad, where she had come to participate in the prime ministerial elections.
Pakistani social media erupted over the allegations raised by Ms. Gulalai.
Announcing to quit the party, she said, "My integrity matters to me the most" and "I can not compromise when it comes to my honour and dignity".
"I personally feel that it is a very unsuitable act to level such allegations for your personal gains".
Asking the crowd to imagine a "naya Pakistan", Imran Khan promised that under his party's leadership the National Accountability Bureau would not wait for the government's orders to take action against criminals. He said that PPP will never compromise over the safety and dignity of women.
