Kohli to contest for senate elections in Pakistan

Srinagar: Krishna Lal Kohli has become the first Dalit woman to contest for the Upper House elections of Pakistan’s Parliament.

Krishna, also known as Kishoo Bai, has been given a ticket for a senate seat by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and is also among the final 12 candidates after others withdrew their candidatures, a media report said on Tuesday.

Veerji Kohli, her brother, was elected as the chairman of union council, Berano as an independent candidate and is a part of PPP along with Krishna Kohli. If Kishoo Bai becomes a senator, she will be the first woman from Pakistan’s minority Hindu community and rural Sindh to reach Pakistan’s Parliament and hold political power.
