Shahbaz Sharif Uses Dozens of Government Websites to Promote His Facebook and Twitter Profiles

Shahbaz Sharif, the Chief Minister of Punjab and also known as Khadim-e-Alaa, uses over two dozen government websites to promote his personal Facebook page and Twitter profile.

These websites – that are owned by government of Punjab and not by Mr. Sharif – are vigorously and shamelessly used by the chief minister to promote a Facebook page and a Twitter profile that he uses for official, personal and political motives.

It maybe recalled that the Facebook page and Twitter Profile in question are personal properties of Mr. Shahbaz, that he will retain even after completing his service term.

Instead of encouraging all these provincial government departments to have their own social media profiles, so that users may follow their updates and they may retain accounts even after the government is over, Mr. Sharif opted to promote his own profiles as if these government websites are his personal perperties.

These government websites range from Punjab Police to Punjab Pension Funds, Daanish Schools to Health Department. Almost every such website has a link to Shahbaz Sharif’s Facebook page and Twitter Profile, encouraging users to become his follower on social networking websites.

When we last checked Shahbaz Sharif had 343,349 fans on Facebook and close to 75,000 followers on Twitter.

It merits mentioning here that there might be more Government Websites used for the same purpose but we could find only 20 such websites – screen of which are attached below:

  • Ahmad

    I just checked one website and could not find any facebook link. The image is attached for all to look at.
    Mr. Aamir Attaa has made a lot of efforts to manipulate images. I wish if he can put his efforts in some constructive work.

    • aamir7

      You are more than an year late to check the updates. Be quick, next time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RizzYaqoob Rizwan Yaqoob

    Only realtion of social media in this article is just you’ve used names of Facebook and twitter in it nothing else -_-

  • talha92

    What about negative activities of PTI on social media? What about the use of cell phones and IT to send fake emails from parlimanterians? Where were you then? Head between Zardari’s legs?

  • aamir7

    You got the point, lil wrong, but you have hit it.

    Profiles of Shahbaz Sharif aren’t property of provincial government. They are Shahbaz Sharif’s properties and will go with him after completion of his term.

  • Baghi

    It’s a perfectly valid concern. He has no right to use government property for personal gains. A social media profile is entirely personal asset and has no reason to be on a government website.

  • aamir7

    All these things don’t come under him, in fact he is under the responsibility of taking care of all the departments.

    If he want to promote his personal profile then he sure can, by spending money on Facebook ads from his pocket. Like everyone else does.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RizzYaqoob Rizwan Yaqoob

    “we could find only 20 such websites”
    Screenshots are only 12, where are rest of those 8?

  • aamir7

    Bahi jee no one can stop him from advertising his pages (given he spends money from his own pocket)

    Politicians, world over, do such promotions.

    But no one uses government resources to promote their personal pages.

  • talha92

    They already did.

    P= politically motivated
    R= research
    O= organization

  • talha92

    Ja ja Adil. Just because you can sell your everything for 2 rupees doesnt mean we do. Lotay.

  • talha92

    Really ? No one? Not your uncle zardari? Not your “bro” Bilawal? No one uses government resources? Haye meray choochay did you just walk out of mommy yesterday?
    Man that is either the lie of the century, the stupidity of the century, or the joke of the century.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RizzYaqoob Rizwan Yaqoob

    If he spend money (from his own pocket) for advertising again some bloggers, journalists and some awam will start yelling its morally wrong to spend money (Awam ka Paisa) in such activities, blah blah…

  • Shahid Saleem

    Why mention Punjab? Is Baloch leaders/followers any different?

  • Sky Drive

    I am a Pakhtoon but I see that Punjab goverment is way better than the rest. But at the same time I don’t see Pakistan with division of Punjabi, pukhtoon Baloch and others. Open your mind and think like a Pakistani, you will be empty handed otherwise.

  • Shahid Saleem

    You must be new to this site. Otherwise you would have seen MANY anti-PTI posts.

  • Shahid Saleem

    Yes they only helped break Pakistan in half (with rthe help of politicians).

  • http://www.facebook.com/RizzYaqoob Rizwan Yaqoob
