New Delhi, May 10 : Pakistan was trolled on Twitter on Sunday after it tried to target India by reporting on Ladakh weather.
The country’s national radio broadcaster – Radio Pakistan – put out a tweet on Sunday with maximum and minimum temperatures in Ladakh, albeit with a major error. “In Ladakh, maximum temperature is -4 degree centigrade and minimum temperature is -1 degree centigrade,” read the tweet from the Pakistani Twitter handle.
Twitter users were quick to point out that -4 degree centigrade was lower than -1 degree centigrade, and cannot be the maximum temperature.
Radio Pakistan’s tweet had come in retaliation to the India Meteorological Department’s move to refer to meteorological sub-division of Jammu and Kashmir as Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad. Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad.
Radio Pakistan’s tweet aimed at levelling scores with India triggered a flurry of jokes and memes.
On Friday, Amit Khare, the Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, ordered national broadcaster DD News and All India Radio to broadcast weather reports of Mirpur, Muzaffarabad and Gilgit-Baltistan.
The move came close on the heels of Pakistan Supreme Court’s decision to hold elections in Gilgit-Baltistan.
India had lodged a protest, asking Islamabad to immediately vacate all areas under its “illegal occupation.” (Agencies)
