A 60-year-old man told PM Shehbaz how thankful and grateful he was to see him in their hours of distress.


Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who accompanied the PM during his visit, translated what the man said.


“I am 60 years old. In my entire life, I haven’t seen any prime minister visiting us. You are the first Prime Minister who has come to share our grief. We are very grateful to you.”
