Give him a benefit of doubt, his legs must be paining, he may be tired for he came walking all the way from Islamabad. For he sold all PIA aircraft for austerity reasons to save Pak from going bankrupt. 🤣https://t.co/gZO8LSOLOT— bilal motorwala (@bilal_motorwala) June 14, 2019
Earlier during the 14th OIC summit, held in Saudi Arabia, Imran Khan was criticised for breaking protocol.
Khan was seen walking off stage before an interpreter could translate his message to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz. The video was shared on social media and both the citizens of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia chided him for disrespecting the king.
