LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s former wife Reham Khan on Wednesday accused sexual favours have been used to give out powerful positions and some of these are related to her former husband’s party.
In her exclusive conversation with Indian-based news channel, she said that sexual favours have been used to give out powerful positions. Some of these are related to Imran Khan and his party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
She claimed that the PTI chairman’s Islamist agenda is not really an Islamist agenda, but it is an agenda which will secure votes. “If he believed in it, I would have very little to criticize,” she said. As an individual maybe I wouldn’t vote for him, but at least people would know but the fact that they are constantly changing loyalties is not something I’m comfortable with.
The former BBC Weather girl went on to say that the PTI could not bring change in the country.
“Well they’ve done nothing in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” she said and added of course, it’s a problem across Pakistan but when you vote for someone who pretends to be or professes to be different, you have higher expectations.
Reham Khan is releasing a book on her personal experiences as a “mother, wife, journalist and warrior”. In the book, she says Imran is not ‘sadiq and amin‘ (honest and righteous) as he kept his third marriage to faith healer Bushner Maneka under wraps for two months.
Ever since the manuscript of her book leaked online, several PTI leaders have accused Reham of being part of an “agenda” ahead of Pakistan’s general elections on July 25.
She said that Imran violated Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution by concealing the truth when asked for an answer.
The PTI chairman’s former wife claims she was hacked by his supporters trying to steal a copy of her tell-all book that threatens to derail his political ambitions.
The autobiography by Reham Khan, 45, the second wife of the World Cup-winning cricket captain, claims to lift the lid on their relationship, with salacious allegations about their private life, including accusations of infidelity.
