ISLAMABAD - Disgruntled leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Ayesha Gulalai on Saturday cast vote in Senate election but the party she has chosen will leave you surprised.

As the polling on 52 seats of the Parliament's upper house is underway, Gulalai reached National Assembly to use her right to vote.
