Twitter can’t help but laugh at PM’s latest slip of the tongue
Politics and Twitter is all about Prime Minister Imran Khan’s slips of the tongue, apparently. Barely a few days after he (maybe intentionally) used the word ‘sahiba’ for PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the prime minister made another slip of the tongue.
Addressing an august gathering in China, Prime Minister Khan spoke about the KP government’s Billion Tree Tsunami project. However, he didn’t keep it to a billion.
“During the last tenure, five billion trees were planted in one of the provinces of my country,” said Imran Khan. “This time, my government has pledged to build 10 billion trees,” he added.
Twitter was quick to point out how the prime minister had inflated the numbers by mistake and said five instead of one.
Another SLIP of TONGUE. ONE billion trees in KPK become FIVE billion trees.
His tongue has been slipping a lot lately; he must have been licking something really bad and wrong.

Another’s slip of tongue? According to official record, PTI has planted 1 Billion Trees in KP in the last five years, which the opposition rejects. However, PM Select in China is saying that “we have successfully planted 5 Billion trees alone in KP. 😃😃 pic.twitter.com/3vVz4Di5Rg

Whereas both claim of having planted one billion or five billion trees are a white lie.
Only ten million trees were planted but cost country price of on billion trees.
It’s the bigger scam than the BRT.

“In our country, in the last five years we successfully planted five billion trees in one of our provinces of KP..”
PM @ImranKhanPTI was speaking at Belt + Road Forum, Beijing and shared seat with world leaders. A white lie; not less than worth of five billions! @BBhuttoZardari pic.twitter.com/2vu8KKRle4
