SOUTH WAZIRISTAN - Prime Minister Imran Khan faced flak on Wednesday after he referred to Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto as 'sahiba', a term used to refer to woman.

Addressing a gathering in Wana, the premier lashed out at PPP supremo and said unlike Bilawal Bhutto 'sahiba' (madam), he struggled a lot to come this far.

Soon after premier's remarks, social media users fired a broadside at the premier for having referred to the politician in such a manner.

Some of the users threw weight behind Imran Khan, terming the reference as a mere slip of the tongue, while others said the 'sexist' remark was aimed at insulting the political rival.

Bilawal Bhutto himself took aim at the premier after the remarks.
