According to media reports, the Pakistani prime minister’s office has been issued a notice for not having paid its electricity bill of 4,100,000 PKR ($26,131). The electricity supply to Imran Khan’s Secretariat is likely to be cut off due to the non-payment of electric bills, as reported by the India Today web portal.
Soon after news outlets reported a power cut in Pakistan’s prime minister’s office, twitteratti went on a frenzy, sharing "beggar" memes and trolling him over the non-payment of electricity bills.

Some others seemed to be enjoying an opportunity to take a dig at him while ridiculing him as “powerless”.
