PROPAGANDA: Issuing a statement in response to a tweet of PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb has stated that PM Shehbaz was not going to Saudi Arabia on a chartered plane.

“The PTI leaders should not mislead the masses through false and baseless propaganda,” the information minister said in the statement, clarifying that the prime minister would go to Saudi Arabia on a commercial flight and bear the expenses of his visit. 

On the other hand, the PTI members and supporters took a dig at PM Shehbaz for a big entourage accompanying him to Saudi Arabia.

Senator Dr Shahzad Waseem tweeted “Welcome to Purana Pakistan”. He shared a news item of a news channel that was about the details of PM’s visit to Saudi Arabia.

A netizen Sufyan Sani shared Ubair Khan’s tweet saying that “PM SS, who called ‘beggers’, will be taking 74 people to KSA via London.”
