While Lodhi was addressing media persons, the visibly angry man shouted at her: “What have you been doing for the last 15 to 20 years. You are not representing us.”
The Pakistani ambassador asked him to stop, but the man said what he was saying was not against the law.
The diplomat refused to answer his question and started to leave at which the man yelled: “You guys are stealing our money, You guys are thieves and you don’t deserve to represent Pakistan.”
People in the event tried to calm the agitated man, but he shouted back “Shame on you. You have been eating money all these years.”
