Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Wednesday said that he had not entered politics like “Bilawal Bhutto Sahiba”, drawing flak from hundreds of social media users, who termed the statement “disgustingly sexist”.
Addressing a public gathering in the Wanna town of South Waziristan, the premier said that whoever rises to power after a long struggle is empowered by Allah. “And such a person fears no one.”
“I didn’t enter politics like Bilawal Bhutto Sahiba, who inherited his mother’s party. I have reached here after a lot of hard work,” he said.
PM Imran’s statement took over the internet by storm and here’s what people have to say about it.
Meanwhile, some preferred to take it as another “slip of tongue”, which the PM made headlines for during his visit to Iran, twice.
