The minister lashed out at Matiullah when the journalist asked him a question that when he gave up his American citizenship outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). Vawda was surrounded by journalists after he came out of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) after hearing of the dual nationality case against him. When Matiullah Jan asked a simple question, the minister lost his cool and accused the journalist of sensationalism. “I know you need this [information] for your sensational vlogs. Later, the minister took to Twitter and proudly shared the video, terming Matiullah Jan a ‘vulture of media’. “I will keep exposing others too,” he wrote."
