Dr. Sania Nishtar is the granddaughter of Sardar Abdur Rab Nishtar, a leading figure in the Pakistan movement. She is the only lady on-screen working hard for the prosperity of Pakistan. She has done a great task under the supervision of PM Imran Khan for poverty alleviation. Possibly one of the very few notable nominations being made by current govt. She has proved that how a woman can surpass many men in administration and governance with her intellect & devotion if given proper platform. She is as simple as simplicity yet an intellectual soul. The type of success which should be brought out as women empowerment.
