Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) demonstrated its street power on Saturday when the Haqeeqi Azadi long march culminated in Rawalpindi, with the Chairman PTI and former Prime Minister, Imran Khan, directing MPAs and MNAs of PTI and its allies to resign from assemblies.
While PTI supporters claim that millions of party workers thronged Rawalpindi’s Murree Road to listen to the address of Imran Khan, opposition workers are of a different view, arguing that the long march’s showdown was a flop.
In order to correct the opposition workers, veteran politician and PTI ally, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, jumped into the fray and shared a video on his Twitter account.
Through the bird’s eye video, the former minister intended to show the true magnitude of the PTI show over the weekend. However, the video turned out to be of a traffic jam in Los Angeles.
Here is the video:

Netizens have pointed out that the video was shot in Los Angeles in 2017. Business Insider, a New York-based online financial media company, published a story on Los Angeles’ traffic jams on 22 November 2017.
As has been the case always, netizens didn’t let this trolling opportunity go to waste. Even the Federal Minister for Railways and Aviation didn’t hold back and trolled Sheikh Rashid.
اب جاگ اٹھا ہے Los Angeles 😂

Sheikh Sahab lived his whole life in Rawalpindi but don't know if this drone shot is of Rawalpindi or not. https://t.co/xaYGhl6kVj
