The internet has objected to a step observed by Imran Khan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf government in Pakistan that upholds VVIP culture in Islamabad. The Express Tribune reports that biometric recognition machines were installed outside washrooms of the Ministry of Industries and Production for top ranking officers in the federal capital.
The internet hasn’t been able to accept the fact. Simply because Imran Khan had assured citizens that he would eradicate VIP culture in Pakistan but his recent stance isn’t in agreement with his statement.
Sources told that the VVIP’ bathrooms are reserved for additional secretary or an officer above the rank. Those serving at the same rank from another ministry can use the washrooms as well.
Sarcasm and tons of it has been invoked in most of the tweets posted by social media users. Journalist Naila Inayat said: “The govt that promised to end VIP culture in Pakistan ended up making VVIP toilets. Yeh hota hai leader, yeh hota hai vision.”
Several others reiterated her opinion. Sample these responses:

On the contrary, soaps and other basic toiletries are not even available for use in the washrooms for the rest of the ministry staff.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was founded by Imran Khan in April 1996. His party won the largest number of seats in the 2018 general elections as Imran Khan assumed office as the 22nd Prime Minister of Pakistan in August 2018.
