PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif touched down in Karachi on Monday to kick off his election campaign for the 2018 polls.

The self-proclaimed khadim-i-aala chose to kick off his campaign with a rather unusual, or should we say, unrealistic request.

He asked his political rivals to "avoid blame games" but blamed the PTI's sit-ins for all of Pakistan's miseries (almost) in the same breath.

Someone please remind Shahbaz that he can't have his cake and eat it too.
