Imran Khan accused of sexting Pakistani MP

Govt to fulfil unfinished agenda of former PM Nawaz Sharif Marriyum

Member of National Assembly (MNA) and former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ayesha Gulalai has said that she will forgive PTI Chairman Imran Khan if he accepts his mistake and apologises for sending her unsolicited text messages that she says caused her considerable mental distress.

PTI Imran Khan has accused Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz of coordinating with media group to malign him over former PTI member Ayesha Gulalai harassment allegation.

In his first public remark on Ayesha Gulalai's allegations, Imran Khan said he would not say anything derogatory against her. The inquiry committee was constituted on a suggestion from Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. "This is an issue concerning the House's integrity-I will suggest forming a closed-door, special committee to probe the allegations and present its findings in the House", Abbasi told Parliament.

In an explosive presser on Tuesday, Gulalai claimed that the culture being promoted by certain party leaders was not in line with Pakthtun cultural values. "She was there with the NA-1 delegation; we discussed the seat as she wanted a ticket and asked me to let her campaign there".

UN Security Council unanimously adopts new sanctions on N. Korea
North Korea has repeatedly said it will never give up its nuclear arsenal, which it sees as a guarantee of its security. And it prohibits all new joint ventures with North Korean companies and bans new foreign investment in existing ones.

Gulalai showed the alleged messages briefly to senior journalist Hamid Mir. "I was astonished to hear that".

The accusations evoked a social media storm and provoked a debate on sexual harassment in Pakistan, with Khan's opponents accusing him of promoting Western values while others called for acid attacks targeting Gulalai, according to news reports. He also ordered security for Gulalai after she claimed that there was threat to her life.

Corruption Mafias PML-N and PPP are trying their best to malign Imran Khan.
