Dear Balkar Ji,
The plant is indeed Pergularia daemia (Forssk.) Chiov. in Result. Sc. Miss. Stefanini Paoli Somal. Ital. 1:115. 1916. Rech. f., Fl. Iran. 73:20. 1970.

Bomb. reprint ed. 2:219. 1958 / Cynanchum extensum Jacquin, Misc. 2:353. 1781-82. / Asclepias daemia Forssk., F. Aegypt.-Arab. 51. 1775. ) from the family Asclepiadaceae.

Leaves 5-15 x 3.8-9.5 cm, broadly ovate or suborbicular, base cordate, tip acute to acuminate, glabrous or shortly pubescent above, usually velvety pubescent below. Petiole 1.8-9 cm long. Flowers in lateral cymes. Pedicel 1.8-3.5 cm long, pubescent. Bracts minute, lanceolate. Sepals c. 2-3 mm long, ovate-lanceolate, generally hairy.
