Soon after her public appearance, Twitter was all-praise for Aseefa with Ali Tareen from the PTI camp calling her "pretty cool".

Among the Bhutto-Zardari siblings, Bilawal as the Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson makes the most headlines — and almost daily.

But last week, Bakhtawar was the talk of the town because of her engagement and this week, it's the youngest sibling Aseefa who has everyone talking after her political debut in Multan.

Aseefa attended the Pakistan Democratic Movement public meeting on behalf of her brother, who has quarantined himself after testing positive for coronavirus, and delivered a brief but impactful maiden speech.

“If they will arrest our brothers, each woman of PPP is ready for struggle,” she stated, clad in blue.

Soon after her public appearance, Twitter was all-praise for Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's granddaughter. So much so, even Ali Tareen from the PTI camp called her "pretty cool".

But what most people couldn't stop talking about was how Aseefa resembled her late mother, former prime minister Benazir Bhutto — and not just in appearance but her oratorical style.

Regardless of whether she evoked memories of Benazir or not, some were simply excited to see the youngest of the Bhutto-Zardari clan make her political debut.

Aseefa thanked everyone for their love and congratulated her party's leadership and workers on "a successful" 53rd foundation day of the PPP.
