PM Modi has created a stir on social media after giving the idea to the youth of the country that selling pakoras is also an employment a few months back. Some appreciated while many have criticised him for the idea. But, it seems like that Pakistani journalists have taken it seriously and followed the instructions of Prime Minister of India.
Recently, Pak journalists have made the protest against the large-scale terminations in media houses across Pakistan. Therefore, to show their protest, Pak journalists took the unique way to protest by setting up a stall to sell 'pakoras' (deep-dried snack) outside the Pakistan Parliament.
A group of sacked journalists has been set a pakora camp in capital Islamabad in front of the Parliament House. The reason behind this was to press the authorities to pay heed to their economic plight.
In the video, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto has also marked his presence during the journalists protest.
