BANGALORE:  After a high profile lunch with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari gazed into TV cameras with a shy smile, saying he was on a ‘personal’ visit to the country.

Meanwhile, ‘Tweeple’ (Those who regularly tweet) vented their feelings about the ‘10 per cent President.’ While some mocked his Zardari’s statements, others took a strong stance against his misuse of the Pakistani taxpayers’ money.

“All the while Manmohan Singh was lunching with #Zardari and company, a movie channel was showing Badmaash Company,” a tweet said.

Another tweet read, “#Zardari has invited our PM to Pakistan saying, ‘Kashmir tak aa jana, wahan se Hafiz aapko escort kar lega (Come till Kashmir, Hafiz will escort you from there).” A tweet saying, “Zardari asks Shekhar Gupta to keep an eye on all non-notified army movement in Pakistan, in his absence,” was retweeted nearly 40 times.

“Mr Zardari, how do you like Biryani in India? Kasab and Afzal love it very much,” said one of the tweets. And another humourous tweet was, “Rahul Baba to Zardari: Chalo uncle, aaj kuch toofani karte hain (a tag line from a popular soft drink advertisement).”

One of the most popular tweet was, “Zardari is Poonam Pandey of Pakistani politics. Ready to expose, whenever low on publicity.”
