Abdul Hafeez Shaikh sahab humein bhi yeh walay tamatar dein

People have been clinging onto the idea of ‘Naya’ Pakistan in the hope that this time, the people leading the nation are more aware of what a common Pakistani citizen is going through in the tough times that have clouded the prosperity of this nation. However, In one way or another, some of the present-government politicians and officials seem to never miss a chance to give people the opportunity to troll them for their statements.


Prime Minister’s adviser on finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh just stated that Tomatoes are being sold at Rs. 17 per kilo

Whilst on camera, Prime Minister’s Adviser on Finance, Hafeez Shaikh claimed that tomatoes were being sold as low as Rs. 17 per kilogram in the Karachi wholesale vegetable market.

As soon as he said that, the reporter immediately let out a shocked ‘WHAT!” and then proceeded to ask Mr. Shaikh which wholesale market he was referring to. Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, in the video, casually goes on to say, “aap Jayein Phir…” followed by inaudible conversation and a man stating that he had bought tomatoes with the rate of Rs. 300 per kilogram as per latest rates today.


Immediately after the video went viral, people couldn’t help but troll Mr. Abdul Hafeez Shaikh


People also mentioned that Abdul Hafeez Shaikh wasn’t the only politician to make such a blunder

Reminiscing about the previous blunder-statements made by other politicians, people mentioned how Fawad Chaudhry also said that Imran Khan’s helicopter ride to work costs just Rs. 55 and ended up being the joke of the day! LMAO


They also called out Mr. Abdul Hafeez Shaikh for being the top finance person of the country and not even knowing the general trend of necessities

In the world outside of ‘where Mr. Shaikh lives’, the tomatoes are being sold within a  price range of Rs. 200 per kg to Rs. 350 per kg.

Even the reporter in the video couldn’t help but exclaim that he had bought tomatoes at the price of Rs. 300 per kg on the same day when Shaikh sahab had confidentially stated the Rs. 17 per kg rate for the essential food item.



Naturally, Pakistanis have started coming up with hilarious jokes about the situation



Some people also exclaimed that such statements coming consistently from Government officials only reveal their own incompetence

Of course, This statement by Mr. Shaikh does not give the population of Pakistan the confidence, that the government officials of Pakistan are actually standing beside them.


Statements like this are rather concerning because they reveal the level of detachment our so-called “elected representatives” have about the predicaments of the average person in the country.

What do you think of this whole statement? Let us know in the comments below.
