Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Faisal Vawda has landed himself in troubled after his rude response led to journalists boycotting his press conference.

Vawda was conducting a press conference when he was asked about the Mohmand Dam bid, which was granted to a joint venture of Descon and a Chinese company.

This did not sit well with the PTI leader who bashed the journalist for asking the question.

“How can I be responsible for those contracts’ bidding that took place when this government was not there? Secondly, if you find controversy or want to concoct one, then this is open and you can investigate this as you like it.”

“Because you are my elder I am answering the question. If this was someone else, I would not have answered and also set aside his mic,” Vawda was quoted as saying by the Express Tribune.

Although Faisal apologized for his words, but the apology came a little too late as journalists left the press conference.

His choice of words and tone are also being condemned on social media.

‘Faisal Vawda should remain graceful and respectful to the media reps. They are just doing their jobs. As a peoples rep himself Mr. Faisal Vawda must be ready to answer all questions without hate and haste’

Some people believe Vawda should not be holding such an important post with the kind of language he uses

‘If you don’t have the decency to speak with respect to a journalist in a press conference, you do not deserve to be in power’

‘So glad to see reporters unite in this instance. Only collective action can save us. These newbies need a lesson or 100 in basics!’

‘In Naya Pakistan, the ministers don’t want tough questions asked but want 2 hold others accountable’
