The official spokesperson of the External Affairs Ministry (MEA) Anurag Srivatava responded to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s offer to help India via its ‘successful’ cash transfer program by reminding him that India’s Covid-19 economic stimulus package is as large as Pakistan’s GDP, reports Indian Express.

Khan was not only mocked widely by Indians and Pakistanis on social media, but the official MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava, too took a jibe at Pakistan.

“We all know about their debt problem, and how much they have pressed for debt restructuring. It would also be better for them to remember that India has a stimulus package which is as large as Pakistan’s annual GDP”, Srivastava was quoted as saying.

"Pakistan is better known for making cash transfers to bank accounts outside the country rather than giving to its own people. Clearly, Imran Khan needs a new set of advisers and better information," he added.
