Picture of Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari with the barefoot poor children is going viral on social media. The picture shows Bilawal Bhutto sitting on his feet surrounded by poor children with bare clothes and shoes. FM Zardari is seen smiling while taking a picture with them.
The pictures are taken apparently in the rustic school of Sindh; the home province of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari he is visiting these days. The picture is receiving backlash on social media. Netizens are questioning the legacy and rule of PPP in the province where people are poor enough to afford a pair of shoes and proper clothes for their children.
Some asked why Bilawal was smiling in the picture when he should be ashamed of how people of his province are living in poverty.
“If there’s an image that represents Sindh under PPP I would choose this. Kids that don’t have shoes, and goes to destroyed classrooms, while its powerful elite wears the weirdest shoes,” said a Twitter user while commenting on the picture.
“Most likely a ghost school since Sindh has the most of them than any other province, with crumbling walls, without even a proper board, students with no uniform or even sandals in some cases, but at least a Bhutto came to take a picture with them. Smiles, to ruin their lives,” said another netizen while questioning the rule of PPP in Sindh.
The user who had shared the image with the caption: “Chairman @BBhuttoZardari bringing a smile to every face in the picture” received flak when a social media user called him out in her tweet saying, “The worse are the ones who see nothing wrong in this picture.”
Seems like he is some international ngo’s representative came to distribute candies to the poor kids of Pakistan.
But sadly, he’s the FM, he’s the chairman of a ruling party and you can judge his performance with the shoeless kids the picture and the classroom the pic was taken. https://t.co/rvuIezBaIe
