Faisal Vawda Refers To Journalist Cyril Almeida As ‘Joker’

Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda has referred to journalist Cyril Almeida as ‘joker’ during a Twitter spat.

Earlier, the journalist referred to the minister as ‘Clown Vawda’ and quoted him as saying that the ruling party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) needs at least two to three five-year terms to ‘fix’ all the problems of Pakistan.

In response to the tweet, Faisal Vawda replied: “No joker I think we should consult a C category’s D grade reporter of Dawn Leaks like you to fix Pakistan! Got it piece of…?”

In October last year, the veteran columnist had resigned from daily English DAWN. He took to Twitter to announce the news: “I have resigned from Dawn and ended the Sunday column. Am deeply grateful for the readership and affection over the years. There is no plan to return to writing in the foreseeable future, a break from the media appears to be on the cards.”
