ISLAMABAD – Aleema Khan, sister of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, early on Sunday morning announced that she had chosen a perfect match for her brother to marry.
"We have cherry picked a 'potential wife' for Imran Khan. The nuptials will hopefully take place shortly after the 'New Pakistan' comes into being, which, I must say won't take long," Aleema said in a Twitter post.
This revelation came on the heels of a statement issued by Imran Khan in which he had said that one of the reasons, among others, for his being so desperate to bring about a 'New Pakistan' was to get married – again. "I am pushing for a 'New Pakistan' because I don’t want to be single anymore," a jubilant Imran told his supporters protesting outside the Parliament House.
However, Aleema did not give any details on whether the PTI chief was formally engaged to his bride-to-be, her identity, and a tentative date for the wedding. Soon after the tweet spread, the PTI denied the news, saying Aleema had no Twitter account. "Chairman Imran Khan’s sister Mrs Aleema Khan does not have a twitter account," said a tweet that appeared on the political party's official account.
"Aleema Khan does not have a twitter account. Someone is misusing her name in a fake account. So, please block it," PTI leader Shireen Mazari also tweeted on the issue.
