A blooper by state-run Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) made the channel a target of online trolls after mistakenly the channel wrote Begging instead of Beijing as location tag during their Prime Minister Imran Khan’s maiden address in China, who was speaking at the Communist party’s Central Party School on Monday. The error which was on the screen for almost 20 seconds made the channel target of the online trolls it was during this time when Imran Khan was talking about Pakistan’s economic condition and at the same time, the location tag on screen was running as Begging instead of Beijing, co-incidentally when Imran Khan was making a pitch for debt-ridden Pakistan.
After becoming the target of online trolls, state-run Pakistan Television Corporation later issued an apology and clarified on the matter. It said that a strict action has been initiated in the matter against the officials involved. It was a typographical error which is extremely regrettable.
Pakistan’s recently elected Prime Minister Imran Khan is one of the most popular premier of the country in recent times. He is currently on his first official trip to China in order to boost the economic corporation between the two countries as China is one of its very few allies left.
Pakistan at present is extremely dependent on China and Pakistan-China economic corridor which the country believes that it will serve as an economic booster. After being sworn-in, Pakistan PM Imran Khan a number of times pitched about lowering administrative costs and took other strict decision which involved cost-cutting in government work proceedings. As per reports, China has also agreed on giving its green signal for Pakistan’s name in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), an objective for which India is still struggling.
