Federal Minister Faisal Vawda has landed into hot water for visiting the Line of Control and taking pictures there.
Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed his displeasure at the federal minister’s visit during a meeting of PTI leaders in Islamabad on Tuesday.
On February 27, Mr Vawda uploaded his video on the LoC standing on the wreckage of the Indian fighter jet, which was shot down by Pakistan.
Visited LOC met our brave soldiers standing tall. We are proud of them.
The whole nation salutes you.
No one can harm our beloved country InshaAllah. As PM Imran Khan said we do not want escalation but we reserve our right of defence. So we retaliated. pic.twitter.com/pSNpzaVPmT

Faisal Vawda took pictures with the fallen Indian jet. “I am glad he didn’t cross the border with a pistol in his hand,” said PM Khan.
The premier said that people put their pictures on social media to publicise themselves.
PM Khan advised Mr Vawda to exercise caution next time and focus on improving his ministry.
