ISLAMABAD: Former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Ayesha Gulalai addressed a session of the National Assembly on Monday which was marred by ruckus created from the PTI benches.
Gulalai, addressing the assembly after taking permission from the deputy speaker, said that she was elected on merit and would continue her duties as a lawmaker.
She added that she gave voice to weak women and added that she never compromised over integrity.
“Imran is not a deity that he cannot be criticised, character is important,” said Gulalai over noise created by PTI lawmakers.
She further said that allegations were hurled at her family and she received death and acid attack threats.
Gulalai said that she wanted to tell PTI’s members that they too can face the same treatment in the future.
“The trend of using abusive language should change,” said the former PTI lawmaker.
The former PTI MNA said that her sister, Maria Toorpakai, is apolitical but PTI supporters did not spare her.
The deputy speaker requested the lawmakers to maintain discipline during her address, while asking PTI leader Shireen Mazari to remain seated.
