Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday hit back at those mocking his idea of boosting economy through utilising poultry resources, amongst others.

While addressing a ceremony held on Thursday in connection with the government’s 100 days, the premier said he intended to improve the economy through providing chicken and eggs to the women in rural areas.

“For the colonised minds when desis talk about chickens combating poverty they get mocked, but when “walaitis” talk about desi chicken and poverty it’s brilliance!,” PM Imran said in a Twitter post.

Social media users, however, came up with some thoughts of their own and shared memes and other posts mocking the statement.

There were others confident of the premier’s economic plan and supported his idea:

In his speech, the premier had also said the government was focused on carving policies for the downtrodden and weak segments of the society.

The government is working to bring an equal education system in the society for all. He also said it will also introduce health cards to benefit the masses.

The premier also said that the health initiatives taken in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will be replicated throughout the country, and that the government has adopted reforms for the better management of public hospitals.

    Don’t mock Imran. He has inherited a Poison Chalice. I applaud him for even wanting to take this mammoth and a thankless task of trying to put the Economy right after the plundering of our resources by the PPP govt who virtually bankrupted the country and then PML with all their fancy projects and the vast kickbacks on them put the icing on the cake.

    Give Imi the chance and the PTI to do their job. He has to root out corruption and bring the looted wealth back. Only then we can go forward.

    Good luck Imran. May your God go with you.Recommend
