Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan says Prime Minister Modi apologized for the blockade, Pak media correct
Prime Minister Khan addressed the people of Pakistan on Monday, speaking about why he thinks a national closure in Pakistan is a bad idea.
During his speech (from 3.23-3.47 minutes in the video below) Khan claimed that Prime Minister Modi announced a total blockade in India a few days ago, but had to apologize to the people for imposing a blockade without much thought.
Here is the video of Khan’s speech:
The truth is that Prime Minister Modi, who on March 24, 2020, announced a “total closure” of the nation for a period of three weeks, starting on March 25, 2020, apologized to the people of India for the inconvenience and difficulties of blocking. caused them and not by the block itself.
Prime Minister Modi, while addressing the nation in his monthly ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio address last Sunday, reiterated that the blockade was a necessary step to control the spread of Covid-19, and that there is no alternative. Modi said that in a country like India, with a population of more than Rs 130 million, there is no other way to fight Covid-19 other than to impose a blockade.
Nowhere in his leadership did Modi apologize to the people for imposing the blockade itself. Nor did he say it was not a thoughtful decision.
Pakistan media house Geo News denounced Khan’s false claim about Modi’s apology. In a program they aired, Geo News verified Prime Minister Khan’s false claim, saying that Modi apologized for the inconvenience and difficulties caused by the blockade, and not the blockade itself, and that Modi never said that the imposition of the Blocking was not a thoughtful decision.
