ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Railways and PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique has called for resignation of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan over allegations of misconduct levelled by former PTI member Ayesha Gulalai.
Addressing media after being sworn in as Railways Minister in Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s cabinet, Rafique urged Imran Khan to step down as party chief and present himself before an independent forum for investigation over Gulalai’s allegations that he “sent her inappropriate text messages hinting at marriage”.
“Khan sahib, where is your dignity now? You keep asking for resignations from other people, now it’s time for you to present yourself before an independent forum and either prove your innocence or face punishment,” the minister said.
“No other political leader here in the past has faced such allegations. This is shameful, Khan sahib,”
