In an embarrassment to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, the country’s embassy in Serbia on Friday shared a public message on its social media handle asking people “aap ne ghabrana nahi”.
The Twitter handle shared a video in which it raised questions over Khan’s “Naya Pakistan” pitch and asked how long does the government expects its officials to remain silent when they have not been paid for the last three months and their children are being forced out of schools due to non-payment of their fees.
“With inflation breaking all previous records, how long do you expect @ImranKhanPTI that we goverment official will remain silent & keep working for you without been paid for past 3 months & our children been forced out of school due to non-payment of fees Is this #NayaPakistan?,” the embassy in Serbia tweeted.
The tweet comes with a music video mocking Imran Khan’s dialogue ‘Aapne ghabrana nahi’. “If soap becomes costlier, don’t use. If wheat becomes dearer, please don’t eat,” the lyrics of the song said with Imran Khan’s ‘aapne ghabrana nahi’ video inserted in between.

In another Tweet, Pakistan Embassy in Serbia said: “I am sorry @ImranKhanPTI, am not left with another option.”
This is how Twitterati reacted to this tweet by the Pakistani embassy
The issue of non-payment of salary may be genuine but addition of a funny video towards the end suggests that it could actually be a hacker’s job. If it was indeed from an insider in the embassy, he or she would’ve ended just with the text part due to seriousness of the problem.

Cold, hard economic realities cannot be washed out with brazen rhetoric or covered up by bravado.
