Azam Khan Swati, a leader of Imran Khan's party Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), has shared a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter.

Swati, who served as Minister of Railways from 2020 to 2022, posted a video in which Prime Minister Modi can be seen speaking at a rally.

The video shows Modi's speech in Rajasthan's Barmer.

In the video, Modi can be seen making a comment about destroying Pakistan's arrogance and forcing it to beg.

"We destroyed Pakistan's arrogance, forced them to go around the globe with a begging bowl," the Prime Minister says.

While Swati wanted to embarrass the current Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif, the tweet has not had the intended effect.

On the contrary, it has ended up embarrassing his own boss and the former Pakistan Prime Minister, PTI chief Imran Khan.

The clip shared by Swati is from an old video of Prime Minister Modi, which shows him at a rally during his election campaign in 2019.

Imran Khan, who recently lost power to the Shehbaz Sharif-led coalition of PML(N) and PPP, was still the Prime Minister of Pakistan at the time.

With Pakistan currently facing an economic crisis, supporters of PTI party have begun sharing a video of Indian Prime Minister Modi in an attempt to criticize the Sharif-led government, despite the fact that the comments in the video were made when Imran Khan was still in power as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. It is worth mentioning that Imran Khan was ousted from his position following a no-confidence vote last year.
