Twitterati flays Bilawal’s ‘congratulatory’ message to PM


News Desk |

In a sign of what is seen by many as politics of frustration and immaturity, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)’s Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari took to the Twitter on Thursday and “congratulated” Prime Minister Imran Khan and his party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on “World Puppetry Day”.

Sharing screenshots of Google image search for the “World Puppetry Day”, he captioned the picture, “Today is actually #WorldPuppetryDay congratulations @ImranKhanPTI & @PTIofficial.” The derogatory remarks have attracted social media backlash.

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, however, is encountering a severe backlash on social media for his derogatory and immature tweet against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

In another tweet posted a few minutes earlier, Bilawal had lashed out at the federal government for imprisoning the PPP workers who had gathered outside the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Headquarters in Islamabad ahead of his and former president Asif Ali Zardari’s appearance on Wednesday.

“Has the government removed federal ministers associated with banned outfits yet? No. Are peaceful, democratic, political workers of PPP still in custody? Yes. #LathiGolikiSarkar #NahiChalayGee”, Bilawal had tweeted.

The police had arrested dozens of PPP workers on the charges of creating nuisance after clashes erupted between the police and the workers outside the NAB Office, Rawalpindi. PPP leader Qamaruz Zaman Qaira had claimed that the police had arrested 200 workers, while 50 others were missing.

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, however, is encountering a severe backlash on social media for his derogatory and immature tweet against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The commentators say Bilawal’s recent public statements have tarnished his public image who was otherwise considered to be a progressive, educated and emerging leader of Pakistan.

“Can’t quite believe you [are] the chairman of a political party,” responded one Twitter user Soraya Aziz to Bilawal’s tweet.
