ISLAMABAD: Fauzia Kasuri, a central leader of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf, announced Wednesday that she was quitting the party over claims of ‘unjust’ distribution of party tickets on reserved seats.

Fauzia Kasuri, who was once PTI’s women wing president, claims to have been ignored by her party for its choices in reserved seats for women.

Announcing her decision at a press conference in Islamabad on Wednesday, she alleged that the Tehrik-i-Insaf has been “held hostage by a mafia”.

She, along with thousands of other party members, have become victims of that mafia’s injustices, she said.
