بیگم نسیم ولی خان کے انتقال کا سن کر شدید افسوس ہوا۔ وہ کے پی اسیمبلی میں جنرل نشست پر منتخب ہونے والی پہلی خاتون تھیں۔ انہوں نے ضیاء آمریت میں اپنی پارٹی کی جدوجہد کی قیادت کی۔ انہوں نے ہمیشہ خواتین کی انتخابی سیاست میں بھرپور شرکت کی حمایت کی۔ بیگم ولی کو ہمیشہ یاد رکھا جائے گا pic.twitter.com/GMkYfAcz41— SenatorSherryRehman (@sherryrehman) May 16, 2021
