The Hush Post: During his cricketing days Pakistan’s cricket all-rounder Imran Khan used to be a terror for the opponent teams. Very few could threaten him with their batting or bowling capabilities. Now as a politician, Khan is facing a challenge from a person who has already scored a century, a century of years.
A100-year-old woman Hazrat Bibi is contesting in the Bannu constituency against the cricketer-turned-politician and head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan, a report said.
Hazrat Bibi, who hails from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Bannu district, has filed nomination papers for National Assembly’s NA-35 (Bannu) and K-P Assembly’s PK-89 (Bannu III) seats. Hazrat Bibi will be contesting against the PTI chairperson Khan for the Lower House seat, the report said.
However, Hazrat Bibi, is not a first-time candidate. A popular local personality, she has previously contested elections and as an independent candidate, is focused on the promotion of girls education, it was reported.
Earlier PTI’s Hameed Shahid had become the first woman to contest from PK-10 (Upper Dir) while a government 22-grade officer Ali Begum filed nominations for NA-46, the report said.
