Imran Khan lauds India for 'sustaining US pressure' over fuel price cut

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 22 May 2022, 10:12 am

Islamabad/IBNS: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday lauded India for not buckling under the "US pressure" and buying discounted oil from Russia.

Khan said his government was also working on the same thing with the help of an independent foreign policy and slammed Pakistan Muslim League (N)-led government for "running around like a headless chicken with the economy in a tailspin".

This comes after the Indian government reduced the price of petrol by Rs. 9.5 per litre and diesel by Rs. 7 per litre.

"Despite being part of the Quad, India sustained pressure from the US and bought discounted Russian oil to provide relief to the masses. This is what our govt was working to achieve with the help of an independent foreign policy," Khan wrote in a tweet.

He also took the scope to slam the current Pakistani government calling them "Mir Jafars & Mir Sadiqs" who according to him, "bowed to external pressure forcing a regime change".

"For our govt, Pakistan's interest was supreme but unfortunately the local Mir Jafars & Mir Sadiqs bowed to external pressure forcing a regime change, and are now running around like a headless chicken with the economy in a tailspin," he added.
