Shehbaz Sharif’s promise to turn ‘paan-chewing Kiranchi’ into Lahore backfires

Former Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif was campaigning for votes in Karachi when he said that he will turn “paan-chewing Kiranchi” into Lahore. As if the never-ending biryani wars between the two cities were not enough.

The statement about “paan-chewing Kiranchi” has stirred quite a storm on social media. It has also given Mr Sharif’s political rivals the opportunity to cash in on his blunder. PTI’s Ali Zaidi made his way to Hussainabad – just to have paan.

Paan-chewing is part of Karachi’s culture. The habit is particularly common among the Urdu-speaking Mohajir and Bengali communities. Perhaps making fun of a culture is the last thing you should do – especially when you are looking for votes.
