KARACHI: On Wednesday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Ismail lashed Pakistan Muslim League(Nawaz) president over his remarks that caused a social media storm.
A day earlier, Shehbaze vowed to turn “paan-chewing Karanchi” into Lahore.
The comment infuriated many Karachities, as the citizens of metropolis consider ‘pan eating’ to be part of its culture.
PTI’s Imran Ismail was quick to point that out to Shehbaz as in a video message he said, “Shehbaz Sharif Sahabb you came to Karachi today and the residents welcomed you but you called us ‘Karanchiwalas’ and ‘paanwalas’.”
“Eating paan is a part of our culture,” Ismail asserted in the video.
He further stated that the prospects of PML(N) winning in Karachi is zero.
“There is no space for you to contest from Karachi. We will defeat you and Karachi rejects you,” the PTI leader maintained.
