Watch: Pak PM Imran Khan makes a blunder, says 'India's population is 1 billion 300 crore'
In the video, the Pakistan PM compared 40-50 lakh population to a country like India "which has 1 billion 300 crore people", which has become viral on social media.
While addressing the public in a telecast, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan may have landed himself into a perfect position to be trolled. He made the blunder while trying to draw an analogy with the world and Test cricket. In the video, the Pakistan PM compared 40-50 lakh population to a country like India "which has 1 billion 300 crore people", which has become viral on social media.
Speaking further, he praised New Zealand at the ICC Test Cricket Championship with four or five or five million and Indian, with a population of one billion 300 crores, that they had won Test Championship. As per the 2019 census data, India's population is 136 crore.
However, this is not the first time Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's gaffe went viral.
Earlier this year, PM Imran Khan faced heavy trolling during the Central-South Asia conference in Uzbekistan after he claimed to know more about the history of Uzbekistan than the Uzbek people.
In another incident, the official Twitter handle of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf shared a video in which PM Khan was seen sitting. At the same time, the rest of the world leaders and dignitaries at the event in the Kyrgyz capital stood when the head of states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation arrived for the opening ceremony.
In 2019, during a joint press conference with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran, Imran Khan misspoke and delved into great details about the ties of 'Germany and Japan' when he meant 'Germany and France'. He didn't stop there and kept talking about the 'border of Germany and Japan'. in great detail. The video of the event also showed a series of confused delegates puzzled at this newly revealed geographic boundary as Japan and Germany are far away from each other. Japan is also an island country and doesn't share its borders with any other countries.
