A politician who doesn’t make whacky statements is not worth their salt, lol. Something similar happened with this politician from Sindh when she tried comparing Lahore – a metropolitan city – with Larkana – another, uhhh… city.
Shehla Raza is a PPP MPA in Sindh and is currently the deputy speaker in the Sindh Assembly.
She was recently visiting Lahore, and on her way out she left a very puzzling tweet for the people of the city
Thank you Lahore,time is not far when Lahore will become Larkana of punjab

We don’t know WHAT she meant by this, but the people of Lahore are clearly taking this as a baddua and are telling her off for it:
This man prescribed a doctors visit
Please ask Lahoris if they would prefer their great city to resemble an ancient relic and one of the most dilapidated cities like Larkana. Before anything else, you need to get your head checked out.

While others tried to make sure they read that tweet right
You mean this #Larkana? The city that fell short of becoming #Sindh's #Paris?! … ? Allah na karay!! pic.twitter.com/oJlbYrPTXm

But as always, there were a few jiyala voices in the crowd
And yes, Lahore could be so much better managed than it already is but Lahoriyon ke bhi dil hain and haven’t you heard, jinne Lahore nahi vekhya o jamiya hee nahi?
Only an idiot would say Lahore is any better. Only DHA&Cantt are better because of the army. Otherwise your dear pml n has destroyed Model town’s entrance and lahore’s liberty round about. Gym khana wali road bhi Nawaz ne tabah kardi. Andhi journalist.

All that being said, the general consensus was ‘uhh NO’

The rejection of the very idea was quite relentless
koi zaroorat nhi. Lahore ko Punjab ka Lahore hi rehney dain. aapki badi meherbani.

Seems like all of Lahore can get behind this dua
allah rehem kre lahore walu per….

And finally there were people who took it all as comedy
wah, what a joke.

What do you think Shehla Raza meant by her tweet? Do you agree with her views?
