Famous Pakistani business tycoon and MG CEO Javed Afridi came under fire on social media for his Twitter poll on electric bikes for Pakistan. Important to note, this is not the first time Twitteratis reacted negatively to his tweets.
Earlier, Javed Afridi took to Twitter and asked people to vote on E-bikes for Pakistan. His tweet did not carry a lot of words however it suggested that he wanted people’s opinion.
To clarify, E-bikes are bicycles with a battery-powered “assist” that comes via pedaling and, in some cases, a throttle. Their price ranges from $400-$2000, depending on the brand and model.

However, the suggestion of E-bikes did not sit well with Twitteratis who took this as an opportunity to lash out at the business tycoon for not delivering on his promises.
“Thought Javed Afridi is hyping up MG because he will bring the prices down so that middle-class people like me can afford it. But the businessman only thinks of his interest,” one user wrote.
Another Twitterati claimed called out Afridi for his seemingly “unprofessional behaviour.”
“First fulfill delivery commitments for MG, very non-professional behaviour. We booked a vehicle which was not delivered on time. Then we were asked to deposit additional Rs 1 million for delivery after a month,” the Twitterati wrote.

اس قوم کو معافی ہی دے دیں تو آپ کا احسان عظیم ہو گا ، جیسے لوگوں کو MG کارز کی فراہمی میں ذلیل کیا ھے ، اس کو ہی مینیج کر لیں تو بہت بڑی بات ھے ۔

Famous for teasers?
Important to note, Mr. Afridi is famous for teasers. Earlier, he shared a video about the amazing features of the 2020 MG3 1.5 VTi-TECH Exclusive 5dr. According to Javed Afridi’s earlier tweets, the car would be under Rs. 2 million in the local market.
Prior to that, Javed Afridi teased the MG’s new MG6 pro with the words “soon” as a caption to the video. However, the cars did not materialize.
Moreover, on June 23rd the Javed Afridi shared a video labeled, “Made in Pakistan MG EV.” For this, he faced quite the backlash as it was revealed that the video was of the Indian MG plant.
Pertinent to mention, Pakistan will not forget MG’s EV’s initiative as the first company to bring an electric vehicle, along with the enthusiasm with which Javed Afridi seems to wish to upgrade the Automobile sector of Pakistan.
