“Faulty and corrupt by birth”: description for Sharif.
By Sreekanth A. Nair
In a bizarre sale, an anonymous person in the UK posted an advertisement on e-commerce website eBay to sell Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The sale offer got over 100 bids from 12 people, and the final bidding price was $91,176. The advertisement, however, was removed from the website later on.
The offer was posted under the heading “Useless Pakistani Pm Nawaz Sharif for Sale.”
“Used Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for sale. No longer needed. Needs a bit of TLC. No box or instructions. Buyer must collect. Seller not prepared to touch item. Pick up from central London today, address will be supplied on completion of sale. Buyer must arrange own transport,” the product description goes.
“Not in working condition. It never worked. It was faulty and corrupt by birth. The whole range of the product and its family is genetically defected and corrupt. Take it away and rid us of this disease. Buy this and a similar item in smaller pack Mr. Shahbaz Sharif will be given for free with it and that item is good with drama and passionate speeches but no use too,” the description added.
The product description ends like this. “Usually found in England, America and turkey more than in Pakistan. All business, properties, and family in London but still wants to be a prime minister in Pakistan. Currently in London consulting an ex-corrupt president of Pakistan on how to save his corrupt assets and save his ass.”
Sharif has been under criticism after the Panama Papers’ leak that included his name and claimed that he has undisclosed assets in foreign countries.
