Indian, Israeli leaders showing moral bankruptcy to win elections: PM Imran Khan

Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that leaders in India and Israel are defying the international laws and showcasing moral bankruptcy to win elections in their country.

“When ldrs in Israel & India show a moral bankruptcy in their readiness to annex occupied West Bank & IOK in defiance of int law, UNSC resolutions & their own Constitution for votes, don’t their ppl feel a sense of outrage & wonder how far they will go simply to win an election?” Khan tweeted.

The prime minister even wondered why the citizens of Israel and India do not feel a sense of outrage against their leaders and how far will the leaders go simply to win an election?

On April 6, Khan said that the ruling Bharatiya Janta Party’s (BJP) “attempt to win elections through whipping up war hysteria” has backfired. He was referring to the US-magazine Foreign Policy’s article which claimed that all F-16s sold to Pakistan were accounted for indicating that India’s claim of shooting down F-16 may not be true.

“The truth always prevails and is always the best policy. BJP’s attempt to win elections through whipping up war hysteria and false claims of downing a Pak F-16 has backfired with US Defence officials also confirming that no F16 was missing from Pakistan’s fleet,” Khan tweeted.

The remarks by Khan have come when India is gearing up for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, starting from April 11, while voting is underway in Israel on Tuesday for the 21st Legislature.
