Sept 4 (IndiaToday) – A video of a Pakistani minister cutting a ribbon with his teeth at the opening ceremony of a shop is doing the rounds of the internet and has gone viral on social media. The 21-second clip was posted to Twitter by reporter Murtaza Ali Shah and has already been viewed over 47,000 times so far.
On September 2, Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan, Minister for Prisons and Spokesperson for the Government of Punjab, was invited to inaugurate an electronics shop in his Rawalpindi constituency.
Chohan, it appears, was unable to cut the ribbon with the scissors since it was blunt. So, Chohan used his teeth to cut the ribbon, as everybody else present at the event laughed out loud.
In a separate post on Twitter, Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan also shared the video and offered an explanation, saying that the “scissors were blunt and bad.”
As the video went viral, social media users posted funny reactions in the comments section.
