7th May 2023 Mumbai: Imran Khan targeted the two politicians while speaking at a PTI rally in Lahore from inside his car.
Pakistan’s Islamabad: Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), on Saturday criticised Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the foreign minister, for travelling outside of the country while there were “crises” going on, according to Dawn.
While Foreign Minister Bilawal visited India on Thursday to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Goa, Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is now in the UK for the coronation of King Charles III.
Imran Khan attacked the two politicians while speaking at a PTI rally in Lahore from inside his car. The purpose of the protest was to express unity and support for the Pakistani Supreme Court, the Constitution, and Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial.
“The world is making Pakistan look bad. We enquire, “Bilawal, you are travelling the entire world, but first tell us, do you consult anyone before leaving that you are spending the nation’s money on a trip, so what will be the benefit or loss from it?” said Khan.
According to Dawn, the PTI leader questioned the value of the trip to India.
In his remarks at the SCO summit, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar emphasised that terrorism in all of its manifestations, including cross-border terrorism, must be put an end. Typically, Jaishankar was making a reference to Pakistan.
“We firmly believe that there can be no justification for terrorism and that it must be stopped in all of its forms and manifestations, including cross-border terrorism.”
Later, according to Dawn, he claimed that Pakistan supported terrorists in Kashmir, and the country’s foreign minister’s attitude was “found out and called out.”
