Bakhtawar Zardari and Governor Sindh are providing so much entertainment right now, tbh
Twitter wars between politicians have now become quite a norm. Politicians initiate the activity by criticizing the opposing party over something and a response from the other party escalates the clash into a feud. An interesting battle between Imran Ismail and Bakhtawar Bhutto is being witnessed by Twitter users and here are the details.
So, it all started from a simple tweet by Imran Ismail, who mistakook ‘Thar’ as the city ‘Sukkur’
The Governor of Sindh posted a picture of Karachi delegation on his official twitter account. While captioning the picture, he made a mistake and captioned it as ‘Karachi Delegation in Sukkur’.

His tweet was followed by a severe response from Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari who took the opportunity troll his party by calling the ‘mistake’ a naya level of incompetence
She further said that this was offensive for the Governor to not know the correct name of the place.

This conversation escalated into a twitter battle when Imran Ismail responded with a retort of his own
He clearly stated that Bakhtawar should pay attention to the issues which are more important in nature. He also mentioned a case which needs immediate attention for instance the high infant mortality rate.
I guess this issue needs ur attention more. According to a media report, Another infant has died of malnutrition and disease(s) at Civil Hospital Mithi. Death toll has risen to 29 during the current month. Sindh Government needs to adopt appropriate measures immediately.

A backlash against the Governor was soon witnessed
Imran Ismail Sb, You are Governor and Representative of Federal Govt in the Province. Sindh Govt is doing its best to improve conditions in #Thar. What #PTI Govt has done for Thar except Viceroy-like visit and photoshoots in Thar. #StopOstrichingAndServePeople

People started calculating the cost of the Thar visit
@imranismail u went to visit thar with hundred of cars in protocol, walking at red carpet at our tax money and came back by not announcing a single penny development in thar.

They even told Imran Ismail to complete his graduation first
Because of recent controversy over his spelling mistake, the scandal over his educational background has come into discussion yet again.
Mr. Governor I think you should complete your Graduation As soon as possible you do lots of spelling mistakes these days better to focus on your studies.

Some also tried to make the Governor realize that the issues mentioned by him were his responsibility too so he retort to Bakhtawar didn’t make sense
But arent you Governor? Its upto you to provide leadership n call the CM to get this moving instead of calling out a young lady bcz shes your political opponent. Have some grace if not personal then just social @ImranKhanPTI Men without manners :((

Mr. Governor, in what capacity are you replying to non government personality?
Have some grace and do something about it.

A sarcastic remark claimed that the governor has the ‘ability’ to swap the names of Kashmir and Palestine and can eventually put an end to major conflicts in the world
Let’s put aside everything. World needs your expertise in History, English and Geography.
Just like you swapped Thar with Sukkur; imagine if you could do the same with Palestine, Syria and Kashmir to put an end to world major conflicts.
Lets find you a Nobel Prize from Saddar.

People started drawing comparison between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh, for some reason, too
Governor sb, highest ratio of infant's death is in KPK. So, stop blaming and come forward to minimizing this rate which is our mutual responsibility.

A few supporters of the Governor also chimed in
Her more attention on your tweet rather the bad condition of Thar. So Ismail Sb you do your work for the betterment of Sindh. May Allah guide n bless you. Aameen

And of course, then Bakhtawar became the target of criticism
Oh no, she would vanish from the face of earth now. She runs away as soon as a serious, factual, logical question is asked. Other wise you can find her on Twitter all day long letting the world know what an intellect she is.

Would love to see @BBhuttoZardari @AseefaBZ navigate their way from Karachi to any other city in Sindh or for that matter anywhere in Pakistan without the help of their drivers/protocol people. Guarantee you they wouldn’t be able to reach Larkana by themselves
