“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,” Imran Khan tweeted while retweeting an information about reduction of the petrol and diesel prices in India. 

Indian government has reduced the price of petrol by Rs 9.5 per litre and Diesel by Rs 7 per litre.

Imran Khan, during his last days in office had claimed that there was ‘foreign conspiracy’ to oust him. He had even named the US. Pakistan government under current PM Shehbaz Sharif is in a damage control mode with the US with Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari travelling to the country.

Imran Khan said “Mir Jafars and Mir Sadiqs” bowed to the external pressure forcing a regime change, and “are now running around like a headless chicken with the economy in a tailspin.”

“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,” the former PM tweeted.
