Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.

Islamabad:

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has once again praised India.

This time Khan has praised India for raising the price of petrol and diesel by buying oil from Russia at a 'subsidised' rate and said that his government was also working to achieve this with the help of an 'independent foreign policy'. .

In view of the impact on common life due to the ever-increasing prices of fuel products, the Government of India on Saturday announced a reduction in the excise duty on petrol and diesel by up to Rs 8 and Rs 6 per liter respectively.

Along with this, the government also announced a subsidy of Rs 200 per cylinder on LPG cylinders used in homes.

This subsidy will be given on 12 gas cylinders in a year to the beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana.

Khan tagged a South Asia Index report in his tweet which says, "After buying oil from Russia at a discounted price, the Indian government has reduced the price of petrol by Rs 9.5 per liter and diesel by Rs 7 per litre. have been given.

The 69-year-old Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief said, "Despite being a member of the Quad, India withstood pressure from the US and provided relief to the people by buying oil from Russia at a subsidized rate."

Our government was also working to achieve the same with the help of independent foreign policy.

India comes third in the world in terms of using and importing oil.

It has bought oil from Russia at a lower price in recent weeks.

In another tweet, Khan said, "Pakistan's interests are paramount but unfortunately local Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq succumbed to external pressure which led to the change of power."

Khan often refers to his political rivals as Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq.

Recorded in history, these people had helped the British rulers in the princely states of Bengal and Mysore by betraying their Nawabs. 


This is not the first time that former Prime Minister Khan has praised India.

Last month, even before the no-confidence motion in Parliament, he praised India and described it as a selfless country.

Even before this, he has praised India and its independent foreign policy on many occasions.
