PTI hits back at Bilawal Bhutto over PM criticism
ISLAMABAD: The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday delivered a sharp rebuke to PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari who took a dig at Prime Minister Imran Khan over his remarks in Tehran.
Speaking to media persons in Tehran yesterday, PM Khan said Japan and Germany share a border.
“Germany and Japan killed million of their civilians until after the second World War they decided that they would have, on the border, joint industries. So now there is no question of them ever having bad relations because their economic interests are tied together,” Khan said.
The remarks drew a sharp reaction from Twitter users in Pakistan who questioned the prime minister’s knowledge about geography.
“Our Prime Minister thinks that Germany & Japan share a border. How embarrassing, this is what happenes when you
@UniofOxford let people in just because they can play cricket,” Bilawal Bhutto tweeted.
The ruling party wasted no time in responding to the criticism of PPP chairman.
“It seems to be alright for Oxford to let in a person who was nominated to chairmanship on a dubious will. Same party which suspended fundamental rights,curbed powers of judiciary,banned a political party,jailed opponents and sent the army into B’stan. Oh; and corrupt to the core,” the PTI tweeted.
“Perhaps would be better if Mr.Bilawal Zardari focused a little bit more on his own history. Must be rattling to see this facade of democracy removed the deeper you delve into it,” it added
