After the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) first political show in Gujranwala, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) government hits back at the Opposition.
PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman were present at the PDM jalsa.
Reacting to the protest, Federal Minister on Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said that the formation of the PDM is proof that only Prime Minister Imran Khan is standing tall against the status quo.
“Imran Khan and the people are on one side and the corrupt mafia is on the other side,” the minister wrote on Twitter.
گوجرانوالہ کا جلسہ اور پی ڈی ایم کی تشکیل اس بات کا ثبوت ہے کہ اسٹیٹس کو کے خلاف صرف عمران خان میدان میں کھڑا ہے۔عمران خان اور عوام ایک طرف اور کرپٹ مافیا دوسری طرف کھڑا ہے۔

Moreover, Federal Minister on Science and technology Fawad Chaudhry took a jibe at the new alliance of opposition political parties sharing a picture of him along with other PTI ministers.
“Watching Cricket Highlights #Relaxing #BechariOpposition,” the minister said in a tweet.

On the other hand, SAPM on Human Resource Development Zulfi Bukhari severely rebuked PPP Chairman Bilawal for what he referred to as the Bhutto scion’s “filthy attacks” during the PDM jalsa.
He also termed Bilawal’s speeches and accusations as “new low and classlessness”.
“Don’t blame Bilawal… 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 today with all his lies & filthy attacks,” the minister lambasted in a tweet.
A new low & classlessness!

Federal minister Zartaj Gul Wazir tweeted a picture of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto, referring to him as a ‘pygmy’.
Calling out the PPP chairman for his accusations and his “harsh language”, the special assistant to the prime minister on political communication said: “The vulgar language used by Bilawal today has [proved] that if 10% of the people will raise children, then those children will grow up and will speak such filthy things about the women of the country”.
یہ سیاسی بونے بیچارے پرچیوں کے محتاج ہیں۔ یہ مل کر بھی عمران خان کا کچھ نہیں بگاڑ سکتے!
When one does not speak from the heart, but reads off some fictional prose from a parchee.

“Bilawal has revealed his true nature. As well as the ‘lifafas’ that call him liberal,” he said in a tweet.
آج بلاول نے جو گھٹیا زبان استعمال کی-بلاول نے یہ بتایا ہے کہ 10% جیسے لوگ بچوں کی پرورش کریں گے تو بچے بڑے ہو کر لوگوں کے گھر کی خواتین کے بارے میں ایسی گندی بدزبانی ہی کریں گے۔بلاول اپنی اصلیت تو بتا گئے اور ساتھ ساتھ ان لفافوں کی بھی جو اسے لبرل کہتے ہیں-
