KARACHI: Pakistani twitter has been riding high ever since Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry attempted to defend the prime minister’s use of a helicopter to commute to and from Bani Gala, claiming that it cost only Rs50 to Rs55 per kilometre. He also said the premier’s actions do not amount to VIP culture and that he is trying to do what’s best for the public by not causing nuisance with a security convoy.
VIP culture or not, people were not willing to let go of the Rs55/k claim. Here are a few examples:
1. This gentlemen can’t decided whether he should get a Suzuki or a helicopter
2. Dark humour
True story though
4. Helicopter committee
Or committee for helicopter?
5. Literally Rs55 for a helicopter ride
A Mehran ride costs more
6. The Careem/Uber crisis
Cause what the hell?
7. Daal or helicopter?
8. Man, people have no chill
Neither does the government apparently
9. Last one, we promise
10. Sorry, this just had to be put out there
What are your thoughts on the helicopter logic?
