Special Assistant to PM on Political Affairs Naeemul Haque blamed his recent spat with television anchorperson Arif Hameed Bhatti on “blind” and “vicious” social media.
After a meeting with the television personality, Haque claimed that all issues with Bhatti had been resolved.
“Had a very good meeting with Arif Hamid Bhatti. We removed all misunderstandings which were caused primarily by the blind and vicious Social Media,” he tweeted on Saturday.

Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar apparently mediated between Bhatti and Haque and can also be seen in a photo tweeted by the latter.
The pair had exchanged barbs on twitter after Bhatti had hinted on a TV show that unethical activities were taking place at the PM Secretariat in which Haque was involved.

To this Haque responded, “That unemployed drunk Arif Hamid Bhatti has been talking nonsense against me after finishing his bottle every evening. So far he has uttered complete nonsense and lies. Let us pray for him to get rid of his drinking and lying. May he be more at peace with himself.”
Bhatti, in quick reaction said that he was ready to undergo any medical test provided Haque also do the same. “Naeemul haq sahib will you accompany me for your examination?”
