Ali Gul Pir, a Pakistani rapper famous for his mimicries of big names, recently trolled Prime Minister Imran Khan in a sarcastic video for soaring egg prices.

Referring to PM Khan’s 2018 “great plan” of alleviating poverty by providing eggs and chickens to rural women to start their own poultry businesses, Ali captioned the video: “PM’s plan to help the chickens. The reason why eggs cost Rs160 a dozen now.”

In another tweet, Ali wrote: “It’s obviously the chickens’ fault. They forgot how [the] PM helped them, now they are selling eggs for so much money.”

Besides Ali, former Balochistan chief minister Aslam Khan
Raisani, also made an interesting remark on the rising prices of eggs.

“Eggs are expensive because the chickens are corrupt,” he

PM Khan had proposed the plan in a 2018 speech that marked
his government’s first 100 days.

“I am proposing a plan which doesn’t require billions of dollars,” the PM had said. “The project has been experimented with. If we provide rural women with injections to increase the chickens’ protein intake, these women will have more chickens and eggs to sell. This is a way to uplift the poor.”

نوآبادیات سے متاثر (غلامانہ) ذہنوں کو مرغبانی کے ذریعے غربت کے خاتمے کا خیال مضحکہ خیز دکھائی دیتا ہے مگر جب “گورے” دیسی مرغیوں (مرغبانی) کے ذریعے غربت مٹانے کی بات کرتے ہیں تو اسے “خیالِ نادر” قرار دیکر یہ عش عش کراٹھتے ہیں۔ https://t.co/aiUr29iO0f— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) December 1, 2018

His “chicken and egg” plan received severe backlash and he
had to defend it on Twitter two days later, citing a similar recommendation
from billionaire Bill Gates.

“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!” he said.
