ISLAMABAD: The sister of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman and youngest daughter of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Aseefa, is going to make her political debut at the opposition alliance rally in Multan on Monday, the PPP provincial secretary general said.
The 27-year-old Bhutto, who is an ambassador for polio vaccination awareness, has never taken part in a large-scale political gathering but PPP has confirmed that she will be addressing the crowd in her brother Bilawal Bhutto’s absence, who is quarantining after testing positive for COVID-19 last week.
“The leadership of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will start addressing the gathering at noon, and Aseefa will speak at 2 o’ clock,” Faisal Karim Kundi, KPK’s PPP General Secretary told Arab News on Sunday.
The PDM is an 11-party alliance of Pakistan’s main opposition parties who are campaigning nationwide at rallies attended by tens of thousands, to oust the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan and calling for early elections.
The Multan rally, in eastern Punjab province, is the PDM’s fourth large scale gathering amid sharp government criticism in the wake of rising coronavirus cases in the country.
