PESHAWAR: Cricket star Shahid Khan Afridi paid a surprise visit to Bara tehsil of Khyber Agency on Thursday and urged the tribal people to cast their vote sensibly for honest and sincere candidates in forthcoming general election.

Speaking at a tribal jirga in Bara, the hard-hitting cricketer also announced his support for former senator Mohammad Shah Afridi, a candidate for NA-46, Bara tehsil.

He lauded the efforts of Mr Shah, which he had made for progress and prosperity of tribal people as MNA and senator. He claimed that Mr Shah had served the tribal people without any political affiliation and in difficult time.

Shahid Afridi urged the elders and youth to come to the polling stations and cast their vote to devoted, honest and sincere candidates, who could work wholeheartedly for national development. — APP
