Peshawar: Reham Khan , the wife of PTI chief Imran Khan, has appealed women in the National Assembly constituency (NA-246), to bring change and vote for PTI in the upcoming by-polls on April 23.

She was speaking to media, after attending a function in connection to street children at Chief Minister House in Peshawar.

To a question of journalist, Reham said she had not received any ‘necklace’ gift from MQM chief Altaf Hussain. “If Altaf bhai wants to gift something, he should redirect it to street children and Shaukat Khanum trust,” she added.

She went on to say that she didn’t need any ornaments. Reham also mingled with children and offered them gifts. “I am elated to come in between street children,” she opined. She stressed that not a single child should be on street. “We give money to street children and satisfy our conscience.”

Earlier Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan’s wife Reham Khan was named the official ambassador for street children, by the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government today.

The announcement was made during a conference at the Chief Minister House Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, in honor of Peshawar’s street children in Peshawar. The conference, titled State Children Declaration and Roadmap, also discussed ways to protect children against all forms of violence in Peshawar and to give them their basic rights.

Reham stated that it had always been her passion to do something for children on the streets of Pakistan, as they are not only the State’s responsibility but also each individual’s. She said these children are State’s children, not street children.

She said, according to a documentary on street children, nine out of 10 children are sexually abused, while adding, “We do not need statistics to know what happens with these children.” She also called on people not be indifferent towards this crime, terming it inhumane and socially unacceptable.
