PTI ministers mock opposition, Bilawal for ‘flopped show’
In the run-up to the Opposition's rally in Gujranwala, the government ministers wasted no opportunity to warn the opposition leaders about the coronavirus SOPs. But as the picture posted by Fawad Chaudhry suggests, they were all in a corona-free picnic mode.

Despite the energetic response the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) received in Gujranwala, the government members described the opposition rally a flop show, claiming that they were relaxed and chilling.

One of them was Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry who described the opposition as helpless and said they were relaxing while watching cricket highlights. In his tweet posted after midnight, the image showed him with Information Minister Shibli Faraz and others.

On the other hand, Shibli tweeted an image to show that the opposition did not receive a public response.  

Shibli, who had earlier claimed that the PDM won’t be able to fill the Jinnah Stadium, also retweeted a tweet by the PTI official account which mocked PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah for the “flop show”.    

Meanwhile, Sayed Zulfiqar Bukhari – commonly known as Zulfi Bukhari who is a special assistant to the prime minister on overseas Pakistanis – directly attacked PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for what he called “lies” and “filthy attacks”. 

He described the speech a new low and “classlessness” [wrong use of word though] and said “Don’t blame Bilawal”, adding that “if his parents didn’t make money off massive corruption he’d still be selling tickets like daddy at a cinema today.” That’s the lineage he’s shown with all his lies and filthy attacks, he added.
