QUETTA: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif lauded Assistant Commissioner of Mach Ayesha Zehri for her rescue and recovery efforts amid the rain-induced floods that had killed more than 1,200 people during a visit to the Bibi Nani district of Balochistan.

The prime minister visited to assess the state of the ongoing relief efforts in the province affected by the floods.

The female assistant commissioner, it was reported to the prime minister, worked with her staff to aid flood victims and oversaw rehabilitation efforts day and night after the disastrous floods.

AC Zehri was applauded for and given encouragement by PM Shehbaz, Chief Minister Balochistan Abdul Qudous Bizenjo, and other officers.

Shahbaz Sharif said that the team has worked tirelessly to restore the highway in eight hours. “It is a big thing that the team worked with high spirits during this tough time,” he added.

Traffic from Quetta to Sukkur was entirely halted after the Bibi Nani bridge was destroyed by high-pressure flooding, leaving 6,000 people stuck on both ends.

Ayesha Zehri came into the limelight when she conducted a raid and recovered a young man Abdul Hadi

From the Chaghi district of Baluchistan, where Hadi was abducted, the kidnappers demanded a ransom of Rs. 40 million. Hadi was freed uninjured after one kidnapper was apprehended. She also imposed a fine on a group of Qatari royals who were caught illegally hunting in the Chaghi neighbourhood.

“Women can make a difference”, Ayesha Zehri

“Women can make a difference”, she said. Look at Finland where from Prime Minister to all key ministers are all women”, Ayesha Zehri said. Women can run States if given chance, she insisted.

There is no shortage of skill among Balochistan’s female population. There are innumerable daughters, sisters, and women who broke societal and tribal taboos and made amazing changes to their families and society; Ayesha Zehri is not an exception. To be more accurate, there are innumerable unrecognised female heroes in Balochistan’s female population who have not yet made the news. While the AuratAzadiMarch today may have brought attention to the problems facing women in general, Balochistan’s female population is yet to be heard and supported. Women’s voices in Balochistan have recently been suppressed by the country’s escalating militarization and extremism.
