Twitter calls federal ministers ‘darbaris’ for welcoming PM Khan
A host of PTI ministers including Tareen welcomed PM Khan at Islamabad airport last night
ISLAMABAD: Several federal ministers and former PTI general secretary Jahangir Tareen lined up to welcome Prime Minister Khan at Islamabad airport last night (Wednesday).
Prime Minister Imran Khan and his supporters are referring to his recent official visit to the United States as a ‘success’. PTI leaders and followers claim that Prime Minister Khan was accorded a warm welcome and respect by the US leadership.
However, Twitter pointed out the irony of some federal ministers behaving like ‘darbaris’ (a word used by the prime minister frequently as a taunt for PML-N ministers who suck up to the PML-N leadership) when they garlanded Khan with roses and received him at the airport at 2:00 AM.
Darbaari Qabeena. I’ve heard that somewhere. Haha https://t.co/9Q3I3OnRPF

Modren Darbari! People use to welcome King in past now nothing else to boost, reach airport divert media attention from humiliated and low profile US visit to illusion of success. PM office has certain respect and protocols, disappointed to watch fall from grace. pic.twitter.com/OZUVHJpWBp

Prime Minister Imran Khan used to call PML-N members darbaris for supporting the party’s leadership after harrowing details of their alleged financial corruption were disclosed in the Panama Leaks crisis.
