The abstract for road safety and driving rules says, U-turn is a complex driving manoeuvre entailing 180-degree turn to change the direction of travel towards the opposite direction.

But the term has been driving the nation frenzy everywhere, including the social media. U-turn has become one of the most popular political terminology or better say a has become colloquial term. It all started with the struggle to create Naya Pakistan.

Prime minister of Pakistan, after being mocked by his critics for his remarks about the U-turns he had taken in his political career, came on social media defending his stance about the U-Turn.

In a tweet PM wrote, “Doing a U-turn to reach one’s objective is the hallmark of great leadership just as lying to save ill-gotten wealth is the hallmark of crooks”.

Mr. PM did not mention any name or leader in his tweet, to whom he was directing his statement. But, the clarification of the U-turn was more than enough to make rounds on social media.

The statement had drawn criticism from various fronts. And here is how the U-turn being mocked on social media:
