Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Saturday has finally responded to criticism of his proposal to eradicate poverty from the country with the help of poultry.

He cited the poultry initiative ‎taken by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to silence the ongoing criticism on him for his ‘chicken formula’ to be implemented in Pakistan.

While sharing a news article on Bill Gates, PM took to social networking website Twitter, writing, “For the colonised minds, when ‎desis talk about chickens combating poverty they get mocked but when “walaitis” talk about desi ‎chicken and poverty it’s brilliance”.

And after Imran Khan, his political party also tweeted in support of the premier’s plan and said, “Microsoft founder @BillGates launched a campaign to help extremely poor families in Africa by giving them chickens. However, when PM Imran Khan talks about it, it becomes an issue.”

“Propagandists really can’t rise above their hate!”, it added further.

Earlier on Thursday, while addressing a ceremony to mark his government’s 100 days in office, PM Imran said that the government will give eggs and chickens to rural women so they can start their own poultry business.

He said , “The project has been tested and the government will provide injections to them for raising the chickens faster. This way they will have nutrient food for eating and more chickens and eggs to sell”.

It seems like Mr. Prime minister could not select the appropriate words to explain his point of view and the idea properly, since then it is being ridicule all over the social media and has been talk of town.
