It is safe to say that politicians helping the general public is not a common sight for Pakistanis to observe.
Therefore, a video of Chief Minister Punjab, Usman Buzdar picking up passengers and giving a ride to those stuck on roads due to heavy rainfall is taking social media by storm.
Whether or not it is for the right reasons, the public is trying to figure out. Look at the video here:

Here’s what people are saying about it.
Many are labeling him a superhero.
What a #SuperHero is our #CM Usman Buzdar
A real angel saving the day!
Haters will keep saying "It's a stunt".🔥
I don't care, because our PM is handsome and our CM is clever.

While some are calling it a “populist gimmick”.
Amusing to watch PTI raving about Usman Buzdar over same populist gimmicks for which they once loathed Shehbaz Sharif. Self-mocking. https://t.co/nBBncvUhro

While many are saying that it was just an attempt at copying Shahbaz Sharif.
What a Comparison. The hands on Punjab CM, the Honorable Shehbaz Sharif knee deep in rain water accompanied by his administrative team and the puppet CM Usman Buzdar only looking for a photo-op by providing a taxi service. pic.twitter.com/bVYMGU6wm2

However, many are also of the opinion that even if it was a publicity stunt, it cannot be denied that it was something that helped distressed people.
Moreover, it has also been reported that the Minister is also keeping an eye on the drainage situation in Lahore after the rain.
