As people waited with bated breath to hear which way the no-confidence vote for Prime Minister Imran Khan will go, the government, it seems, had other ideas. The session started with the recitation of the Quran and a naat, followed by the national anthem before being abruptly postponed till 12 30pm.
However, before the postponement, the government had one more card to play, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and his speech that many are still talking about on Twitter.
Some called the speech a deliberate tactic to delay the voting
Some called out the delay in classic cricket jargon, a befitting tribute to our government
Some people on Twitter just couldn’t wait for the vote
While some predicted that the reason for the adjournment of the session was, in fact, Mahmood’s speech.
And others took it upon themselves to update everyone on their feed
Some were just downright confused about the content of the speech
And some actually enjoyed it
While others were really concentrating hard on Qureshi and not on his speech
