ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday responded to his critics for questioning his proposal to raise poultry as solution to poverty in the rural areas and said when such suggestions and plans were floated by the foreigners (including Bill Gates), they were taken as brilliant.
On his twitter account, Khan posted, “For the colonised minds, when desis (locals) talk about chickens combating poverty, they get mocked, but when “walaitis” (foreigners) talk about desi chicken and poverty, it’s brilliance!”
During a ceremony to highlight performance of Pakistan Tehreel-i-Insaf government’s 100 days, Khan had given suggestion to help womenfolk in the rural areas to breed poultry.
The prime minister along with his tweet also attached a news about Bill Gates, a renowned business magnate, philanthropist and founder of Microsoft corporation, who in June 2016, while standing on one of the floor of the New York skyscraper, announced how chickens could be used to tackle poverty.
Gates announced his foundation’s partnership with Heifer International, a leading charity organization addressing poverty and hunger, donating livestock to the poor families around the world.—APP
