Daughter of the late premier Benazir Bhutto Aseefa Bhutto Zardari praised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Twitter this Saturday for vowing to lead the anti-polio campaign in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P).
Polio workers are frequently attacked by militants and in the wake of a recent attack on Friday in which two people were killed, Imran Khan called on all political and religious leaders to join him in the campaign to eradicate polio.
Aseefa, who is also Pakistan’s goodwill ambassador for polio eradication, praised Imran for taking the initiative and urged politicians to set political differences aside when it comes to matters of healthcare.
Her older brother Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, chairperson of the Pakistan Peoples Party and a frequent critic of Imran Khan’s policies, also surprised his followers by tweeting his support for PTI’s upcoming protest against inflation.
This praise from the siblings did not go unnoticed and PTI leaders Shireen Mazari and Naz Baloch quick to appreciate the support.
Mazari expressed her appreciation of Aseefa and Bilawal’s remarks in a tweet, before going on to state that these compliments are proof that PTI is the voice of the nation.
