Chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari stayed away from the engagement ceremony owing to coronavirus infection. Bilawal has isolated himself to a specific portion of Bilawal House.

Asif Zardari, who has been hospitalised due to his ill health, after consulting his physicians, came to the Bilawal House for a brief period to attend the engagement ceremony.

Mahmood Chaudhry drove in a bullet-proof vehicle to reach the Bilawal House from a five-star hotel of the city. Mahmood Chaudhry wore an off-white dress with Kashmiri shawl for the engagement ceremony. Children of his family wore black waistcoats and white shalwasr at the engagement ceremony. Rest of his family members wore eastern dresses. The ceremony was also attended by Farooq H Naek, Senator Sherry Rehman, Anver Majeed and other high-profile persons.

Special security arrangements were made for the engagement ceremony. The guests of the ceremony fully adhered to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Guests were asked beforehand to send the scanned copies of the result of their coronavirus test before the function. The guests were not allowed to take pictures of the ceremony as photographs of the function were provided by Bilawal House only.
