Imran Khan’s plan to come to Karachi was as hyped as anything that is associated with him. The man never loses his charm. Add to that that the fact that this time he came with the new Mrs Khan, who was rewarded with the title of ‘National Bhabi’ by MQM. But that doesn’t mean everyone was equally excited or overjoyed about it. Given the events that occurred in the past few days had increased tension in the city as it is and most citizens were apprehensive rather than happy. Here are the reactions that people from different segments of society had on his arrival:
MY LEADER IS HERE! TABDEELI AGAYI HAI YAARO!!!
Tum aye to aya mujhe yaad, gali mai aj chand nikla; jaaney kitne dinoun k bad gali mai aj chand nikla. I’m going to dance myself to Immy…I mean change!
You’ve hurt our feelings and we are emotionally injured, but Bhai told us to be calm and behave so…
Residents of Nine Zero (Azizabad)
He’s gonna come for lunch!!!
Did he come? Is it over yet?
Residents of Karachi
Whatever, we have better things to worry about
And most importantly, journalists, who are always in the line of fire and still don’t get any credit
Seriously, is this deja vu or what? He’s saying the same things!
Even my creativity is cursing me now. How do I make it sound like he said something new and important?
