Earlier this week, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was spotted visiting different areas of Multan as a pillion rider on a motorbike, without any protocol and listening to the problems of his constituents.
Hardly anyone is not familiar with the lines our political leaders can cross while trying to score attention or approval of the masses.
Here are four of The Current’s favourite Pakistani political stunts.
4. Shehbaz Sharif’s overenthusiastic address to party workers:
Shehbaz and his signature “mic drops”. Here’s a private news channel’s report on it.
3. Imran Khan burning a utility bill against inflation under PML-N rule:
Fulfilling his promise to burn his electricity bill at the infamous 2014 sit-in, the PTI chief set fire to a piece of paper on night of his call to celebrate the “Day of Deliverance”.
2. Sheikh Rasheed on the run across Rawalpindi:
Despite orders for his arrest, Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed made it to a rally of his supporters in Rawalpindi’s Committee Chowk on a motorbike while beating the cops after him.
1. Imran’s ‘civil disobedience campaign’ against PML-N government:
The disobedience movement was a no-confidence public campaign against the government of PML-N. It was launched by the PTI chief in 2014 to protest against the alleged corruption of Sharif family members.
The air-hostess of a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight has “gone missing” in France.
According to the administration of the flag carrier, 30-year-old Shazia Saeed was part of the crew on PIA’s April 6 Sialkot-Paris flight.
“She was found missing when the Paris-Lahore flight was scheduled to leave for its destination on Tuesday. The PIA station manager in Paris reported the matter to the authorities there,” a PIA spokesperson was quoted as saying.
According to Dawn, the Lahore-based hostess may seek asylum in Europe and in that case, PIA may remove her from service.
The disappearance of PIA flight crew members in Europe and North America is not new as in September 2018, a hostess, Fareeha Mukhtar, who was earlier barred from traveling on international routes, went missing in Canada.
Mukhtar was suspended from service in 2015 over allegations of smuggling currency and mobile phones.
She was later traced in Toronto where she was staying with former air hostess Mahira who had also disappeared two years ago.
