“I was born in politics and I breathe politics. It’s about leadership and

I have sixteen years of practical experience in politics.

So I have that in me. And then the party’s experience is behind me.

I belong to a party that has a political history of more than 90 years.  So I am fresh and have an open mind, which is an asset in itself,” said Ameer Haider Khan Hoti in an interview to the local press the other day.

The 37-year old Aitchisonian was elected to the provincial assembly in the 2008 elections, though his first bid to make to the house in 2002 polls was unsuccessful.

Amir Haider Khan Hoti was inducted as provincial joint secretary in the provincial cabinet of the party and later made provincial deputy secretary general, an office he has been holding to date.

The late Amir Muhammad Khan, a close associate and confidant of Khudai Khidmatgar Baacha Khan, was the grandfather of Amir Haider Hoti, whose younger brother Ghazan Khan is presently looking after financial matters of Baacha Khan Welfare Trust.
