What is this shi*: This Azadi March video of ANP chief will have you in fits

Islamabad: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Thursday created confusion with an announcement that Azadi March Jalsa has been postponed to Saturday in honor of victims of the train tragedy in Punjab.

The party got rebuke from the JUI-F leadership which was camping some 50 kilometers away from the capital, with Maulana Fazlur Rehman and his comrades saying everybody who says the Jalsa has been cancelled is hatching a conspiracy.

The PML-N’s statement came when Awami National Party (ANP) leader Asfandyar Wali Khan was leading his party workers to Islamabad to become part of Maulana Fazal’s Azadi March.

Already suspicious of the PML-N’s reluctance to take part in the Azadi March in Lahore, both ANP and the Pakistan People’s Party smelled a rat and wasted no time in announcing that everything will as planned.

The ANP chief was visibly perturbed over the situation that had taken shape before his arrival in the capital.

It was also evident during his media talk when he had to stop midway when the nearby mosque started calling Azaan.

The mics were on and he was caught saying something which bemused social media users.

ANP leader who was sitting next to Asfandyar Wali Khan is heard reassuring a man in Pashto language that “Bilawal umm razi” (Bilawal is also coming)”.

ANP chief is then muttering something while talking to Mian Iftikhar Hussain. It was not something many would expect him to say. “Da Se Ghol Di” (What is this shi*).

The video clip of talk was being shared on Twitter with everyone giving it it’s own meaning.

PTI supporters saw frustration among the opposition’s rank while the Azadi March supporters interpreted it just a casual remark which everyone utters when annoyed with something (not necessarily when your allies are becoming elusive).
