Playing on a famous Pakistani tagline – “Jal gaya, Burnol lagain,” a mix of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) cyber fans and others hit out at their rival, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Twitter.
The hashtag #Burnol4PMLN trended locally, where web-savvy PTI fans criticised the Nawaz-league for family politics, failed protests and an ‘unsuccessful’ laptop scheme.
A counter trend – #Pity4PTI – was also created, but failed to acquire momentum.
Some interesting tweets from the #Burnol4PMLN trend have been selected and mentioned below:
#MianSaab hun jaan dyo.
Nawaz Sharif was bowled over when asked abt the resignations from the assembly & questioned ‘ye live ja rha hai?’
Soon behind cycles and rikshaws u’d find another phrase,”nooray yaar tang na kar” I can see a revolution in the making.
PML-N should respect the fact that PTI supporters are in majority.
Nawaz terey Jaan Nisar … Aik Do Teen Char :D
They talk about Merit but promote Maryam Nawaz and Hamza Shahbaz in party. Now we know what they mean by Merit
Shortest joke: PML-N is not family party
Some interesting tweets from the #PityforPTI trend below:
Jinnah wasn’t in “Power Hunger” like ImranKhan #Jinnah never advertised himself for memberships..!
Jinnah never falsely accused anyone for underpayment of his taxes. He always talked with the facts!
i wonder why paid people belong to some party always screaming here why not let impartial people say anything ?
AZAM SAWATI . what more can I say but #pityforpti
Immy Bhai want PMLN to resign but can’t get his own member awais leghari to resign from assembly.
#PityForPti needs to bring quality in trolls at least – some political sense may be good :)
