BAHAWALPUR: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) workers threw eggs and tomatoes in front of Ayesha Gulalai in Bahawalpur to express their anger.
The incident occurred as the MNA arrived in a private hotel of Bahawalpur on the invitation of Suba Bahawalpur Bahali Tehreek (SBBT) activists.
PTI party members including the females staged a protest and raised ‘go Gulalai go’ slogans. In response, ‘go Imran go’ and ‘ro (cry) Imran ro (cry)’ slogans were chanted from the other end.
Gulalai claimed that the people have been misled by someone. She termed the politics of shoe and ink as a revolution.
Such incidents have become a norm in the recent days. A shoe was hurled at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif by a former seminary student during his visit to Jamia Naeemia seminary in Garhi Shahu on March 11. A day before a person threw ink at Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif while he was addressing a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz PML-N convention.
Last month, a man threw a shoe at Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal while he was addressing a workers’ convention in Narowal.
Similar incident occurred with PTI chief Imran Khan, however; he remained safe in the incident.
