Special Assistant to Prime Minister Naeemul Haque has termed television personality Arif Hameed Bhatti an “unemployed drunk”.

The pair engaged in a Twitter spat as earlier the TV anchor had hinted that unethical activities were taking place on the fourth floor of the PM Secretariat in which Haque was involved.

He also claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan had taken notice of these activities.

The PM’s adviser took to Twitter lashing out at Bhatti over the comments, saying:”That unemployed drunk Arif Hamid Bhatti has been talking nonsense against me after finishing his bottle every evening. So far he has uttered complete nonsense and lies. Let us pray for him to get rid of his drinking and lying. May he be more at peace with himself.”

Bhatti was quick to react to the tweet replying, “I am ready to go to any medico-legal facility for my test. Naeem ul haq sahib  will you accompany me for your examination?”

This is not the first time the PM adviser has had a war of words on the micro-blogging site, as earlier this year he traded barbs with then information minister Fawad Chaudhry over the appointment of MD PTV.
