Taking to Twitter, Zaidi thanked the bishop for extending support to the Imran Khan-led party. “InshaAllah in Naya Pakistan every citizen will get an equal opportunity to build a future for himself and his family,” he wrote.

In another tweet posted hours later, Zaidi shared images of a meeting with Cardinal Joseph Coutts. He said the Cardinal had spoken to PTI chief and “extended warm wishes to each other.” Father Seleh Diego, Chief Protocol Officer Pervaiz Gill, Sanjau Gangwani and Sheikh were also present at the meet.
