Krishna Lal Kohli becomes first Dalit woman to contest for senate elections in Pakistan | 10 facts to know
 
 
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.
 
Veerji Kohli, her brother, was elected as the chairman of union council in Berano as an independent candidate and is a part of PPP along with Krishna Kohli. If Veerji 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.
