Daughter of the first female prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto and former president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari, Aseefa bhutto Zardari's political appearances at recent Jalsa and her style to address Jiyalas reminded the late Benazir Bhutto. Seems like Pakistan Peoples Party gonna have another strong female leader after Benazir.
Aseefa, who attended the rally and delivered her first historic speech on her brother and PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari's behalf, said that the public has given its verdict and the "selected will have to go now".
Youngest Bhutto kept her speech short and brisk. In it, she vowed to stand by her brother, party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, who was convalescing due to the coronavirus, "every step of the way".
27-year-old Aseefa Bhutto seemed to channel her mother’s Benazir Bhutto persona as she addressed the crowd. Aseefa also is even being called Choti bibi.

Getting goosebumps. She's uncannily like her mother, late BB shaheed. Undoubtedly jiyalas must be tearing up. May Allah protect her always. Beautiful urdu accent as well @AseefaBZ #PDMJalsaMultan #aseefabhuttozardari #PPPFoundationDay— Meher Bokhari (@meherbokhari) November 30, 2020
