A prankster put up Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on sale on Ebay U.K. for over 66,000 pounds. The condition of the item has been categorised as "new with defects."
In a rare incident, Ebay seller Mastavis put up the Pakistani prime minister on sale with "useless" written in the product name. There have already been seven "inquiries" for "item no. 162037014813," which has been priced at more than Rs. 62 lakh.
"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 reads on the website.
The seller further stated that the product, located at Hounslow in the United Kingdom, cannot be returned.
"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 [Nawaz Sharif's brother] will be given for free with it and that item is good with drama and passionate speeches but no use too," the seller added.
"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," the description concluded.
The Pakistani prime minister has been embroiled in controversies ever since his children were named in the Panama Papers leak. Earlier, reports had said that Nawaz Sharif flew to London to meet former President Asif Ali Zardari seeking his support. Islamabad denied the claims, citing medical reasons for Nawaz's departure amid calls from the opposition for his resignation, the Press Trust of India.
