Here’s How Amused Pakistanis Are Over Fawad Chaudhry’s Cost Calculation Of A Helicopter Ride

Fawad Chaudhry's Cost Calculation Of A Helicopter Ride

Seems like the new government is suffering from some dominos effect as each morning brings a fresh stock of controversies which is then followed by very sloppy damage control attempts. The latest episode of embarrassment came from CM Punjab Usman Buzdar (his second in two weeks) who used a private plane to visit a friend in Mian Chunnu along with his family. Later that day it was also revealed that PM Imran Khan commutes to PM House from Bani Gala by helicopter. The information dropped many jaws for all the wrong reasons and people took to Twitter to condemn the VIP culture. Then, on being approached for an explanation, Fawad Chaudry talked to the press and stated, “Prime Minister Imran Khan’s journeys to and from Bani Gala on the helicopter cost between Rs50 and Rs55 per kilometre.” Next thing we know, Twitter was flooding with #helicopter memes and jokes. Here’s how amused Pakistanis are by Fawad Chaudhry’s cost calculation of a helicopter ride.

Of course, we expected some geniuses to defend the statement.

That being said, it doesn’t take one to be a rocket scientist to estimate if a helicopter ride would cost Rs.55/km or not. While we don’t know the authenticity of the statement, we, like most Pakistanis right now, find Fawad Chaudhry’s cost calculation of a helicopter ride hilarious at many levels and thank the minister for giving us fresh content for memes that will entertain us for the ages to come.
