Usama, a young soul passed away after meeting a tragic road accident in Lalamusa yesterday. He was the son of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) President Qamar Zaman Kaira
Usama Qamar Kaira merely in his teens and very intelligent was a student at Government College of Lahore. He was driving a white corolla and overspeeding that made him lose his grip on the car which crashed into a tree. One can only imagine the high impact of collision considering the speed and it is heartbreaking.
Senior PPP leader Qamar Zaman was in the middle of a press conference when he received the unfortunate news. The video below shows his reaction of disbelief and shock when he comes to know about his son’s accident. He immediately called off the conference and left for the hospital where his son had passed away.

Including the party members seen in the footage around him offering support, several politicians sent their condolences as well – Prime Minister Imran Khan, Asif Ali Zardari, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, Bilawal Bhutto, and President Arif Alvi were just a few.
