Former cricketer and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has lashed out at Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for making friends with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi while the latter was busy isolating Pakistan in the international community. Speaking to reporters in Islamabad, Khan said, “Narendra Modi wouldn’t have behaved like this had Nawaz Sharif not given him the wrong signals. He didn’t get the time to speak to Hurriyat leaders, but went to Modi’s inauguration as the new leader (in 2014).”

Khan goes on to say that Pakistan would not have been at this stage had Nawaz Sharif shown some leadership qualities. “If he really cared about Pakistan, he wouldn’t have had to create this drama in the joint session.”

Imran Khan also accused the Pakistani Prime Minister of shopping in London while there were tensions at the border. “There is tension at the border and Nawaz Sharif is shopping at Gucci in London,” he said, citing more example of when Sharif was outside the country while it faced tensions.

The speech came after Nawaz Sharif last week called the joint session of bicameral parliament on Wednesday to discuss tensions with India after India conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Imran Khan announced that he would boycott the joint session.

The Nawaz Sharif government in Pakistan has warned its military leadership of international isolation that the country is facing, seeking consensus on several key actions by the state.

Last week, Khan had warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying Pakistan will stand united in case of war and he should not think all of Pakistan is like Nawaz Sharif.

      Imran is correct.Nawar sharif should not have India's hospitality and pretend to understand what modi's intentions are.Being a straight forward man, Mr.mody thought that he can deal with him but the two faced sharif pulled the rug under the feet of Mr.Modi. Naturally Mr.Modi would have been hurt and angry.Now Nawar sharif has lost on the world stage,his own parlimentarians are not happy and the people in the war affected area are up in arms.Last but lease, the army is between the rock and the hard place as far as the American handouts are concerned.Thanks to their Ambidor to states.

        PM Nawaz Sharif is far matured than Imran Khan, who at age of 62 married 3rd time riding on a horse. This begger comes to India to earn money and talks sweet. He is dalal of Pak military but fast loosing his pority. Current PM and many understanding persons in stan realized the main problem of stan is its military who is looting more than 50 ℅ of GDP of stan for their lifestyle, alas crores of poor and peace loving people are suffering.
