Pakistan PM Imran Khan's 50-minute speech at the 74th UN General Assembly on Friday had many goof-ups, but the biggest was the one when he addressed PM Modi as 'President Modi'. Apart from his long, threatening speech which exceeded his stipulated 15-minute time limit, this particular slip-up by the cricketer-turned-politician has amused Twitter. This was Imran Khan's maiden speech at the UNGA. Twitterati have expressed their amusement at PM Modi's sudden 'promotion' to President.
@narendramodi ji you got promoted as said by our neighbour, congratulation to you 🙏— Biswaranjan Das (@t_BiswaDas) September 28, 2019
PM Modi never answered his call. But ‘President Modi’ as Imran Khan said, might have answered.— Shivam 🇮🇳 (@TheTweetOfHindu) September 28, 2019
Earlier on Friday, while talking about his first interaction with PM Modi after being elected as Pakistan's Prime Minister in 2018, he said, "Immediately, when my party came to power the first thing we did was reach out to India. I spoke to President Modi and said look, we have similar problems. The highest number of people reside in this sub-continent."
Addressing the 74th United Nations General Assembly at the UN Headquarters, New York, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Kahn, on Friday, predicted 'another Pulwama' when restrictions in Kashmir are completely lifted. He admitted to Pakistan's backing for Mujahideen and the country's flimsy economy. He blamed India for its current standing at the FATF. He also made an absurd Hollywood reference to defend terrorism, stating the possibility of a terror attack in Kashmir. Curiously, he repeatedly brought up his former cricket career and rambled on for 50 minutes at the UNGA.
