Pakistan PM Imran Khan falsely claims PM Narendra Modi apologised the nation for lockdown
Islamabad : Pakistan media has called out their Prime Minister Imran Khan after he allegedly claimed that his Indian counterpart PM Narendra Modi has apologized for his decision of putting a lockdown in India; and why lockdown is a bad idea for Pakistan to combat Covid 19.
On Monday, Pak PM Imran Khan addressed his nation and talked about why he is not very convinced with the idea of putting the nation under a lockdown.
During his address (from 3.23 to 3.47 minutes in the video) Imran Khan can be seen making claims that Prime Minister Narendra Modi regrets his decision of imposing the lockdown in India on March 24. He even apologized to the nation for his unplanned decision. Watch video below:
Meanwhile, the truth is that PM Modi, during his monthly address via Mann Ki Baat, apologized for the inconvenience people have to face during the lockdown and not the lockdown itself.
Addressing the nation on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the lockdown is a necessary step that had to be taken to contain the coronavirus and there is no alternative. He claimed that for a country with 130 crore population, there is no other way to fight the Covid 19.
He did not mention even for once that the decision was unplanned and he regrets it.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan media called out their Prime Minister Imran Khan and mentioned about what exactly PM Narendra Modi said during his Mann Ki Baat radio show on Sunday.
