Cricketer-convert-commentator Ramiz Raja on Friday took to Twitter to slam media persons for ‘showcasing opposition’s morbid views’.
Pakistan saw a recent surge in inflation after the dollar crossed the Rs140 mark.
Former finance minister Asad Umar was removed from his post and a bailout package is under discussion with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
All this has led to people questioning the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government and their policies.
Ramiz, who took the monumental catch which helped Pakistan win the 1992 World Cup under now Prime Minister Imran Khan, tweeted that he had heard enough.
What’s gone wrong with our tv political shows and anchors? They have lost it-showcasing opposition’s morbid views who on their watch had fucked up Pakistan. If public is feeling the “price pang”it bloody well deserves it for voting them in power for 10 yrs.#horchuppo— Ramiz Raja (@iramizraja) April 26, 2019
He continued by blaming the Pakistani people for the ‘price pang’ because they were the ones who voted both the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) and then the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) into power in the last 10 years.
“If public is feeling the “price pang” it bloody well deserves it for voting them in power for 10 yrs,” he continued in his tweet.
At a time when the PTI government is being questioned over unfulfilled promises, Ramiz’s support for PM Imran and his government may just be what the former Pakistan cricket team captain needs.
