Rebutting reports about party chief’s third marriage, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday said that Imran Khan has proposed marriage to a woman named Bushra Maneka.
A statement issued by PTI said that to set the record straight, Mr Khan proposed marriage to Bushra Maneka; but Maneka asked for time to make a final decision after consulting her family, including her children.
“If and when the proposal is accepted by Maneka for the marriage, Khan will announce it publicly in the proper manner. Till then we request the media to give the two families, especially the children, their privacy,” the tweet added.
PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said earlier on Sunday that the party would be issuing an important press statement on the reports of party chief Imran Khan’s third marriage.
Another PTI leader, Shireen Mazari lamented that journalist who run news about Imran’s marriage, made public the hearsay. She said life of a woman who does not has a pubic life, has been advertised.
The statement said that Imran himself would declare publicly about the marriage if the proposals was accepted. It asked media to refrain intervening in private matters of both families.
