ANP first female candidate from Punjab breaks stereotypes

MULTAN: A candidate running from National Assembly constituency NA-155 Multan is different from the other contenders in many aspects.

Nosheen Khan Jatoi is Awami National Party’s first women candidate in Punjab, who is contesting on a general seat.

A lawyer by profession, Nosheen is also running her campaign in an interesting way.

She rides a motorcycle to interact with constituents in order to garner their support. The candidate is going door-to-door conveying her party’s message.

“Since I was a little kid, I would look at the conditions of the people around me and wonder what I can do for them,” Nosheen said.

In order to help people, she pursued a degree in law. However, she soon realized that she wasn’t being able to reach out to as many people as she wanted. Then, she opened a non-governmental organization, Niharki Welfare Organization, which offers vocational training, educates people about law, and operates dispensaries at different places.

With time, Nosheen, who hails from Jatoi district of Muzaffargarh, realised that she can only achieve her goals was by becoming a parliamentarian.
