Mr Pervez told Mr Bilawal that people of Chitral were the lovers of PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and your (Bilawal’s) narrative is the voice of the masses.

The PPP chairperson on the occasion welcomed Khalid Pervez into his party.

In the last local government elections, Khalid Pervez remained a general councillor and was a contender for the slot of the district nazim. However, he was nominated along with four others in a timber case and arrested by NAB on August 2015. Later, he was acquitted by an accountability court in Peshawar.
