Talking to The Nation previously, Abbas Jafri said, “PTI is the change Karachi needs and while representing my constituency PS 125 I intend to achieve the change they want to see. Whether, I win or lose I will continue doing my social work. I want to change the culture policies of Pakistan through politics.”
He added: “Pakistan has a rich culture. If I win I will first establish Pakistan Fashion Council which will be run by government.
