Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag slams Pakistan PM Imran Khan for his speech at UNGA

Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly extended his support to Virender Sehwag in hitting out at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for his speech at the United Nations General Assembly last week.

"Viru .. I see this and I am shocked ..a speech which is unheard of .. a world which needs peace, Pakistan as a country needs it the most .. and the leader speaks such rubbish ..not the Imran khan the cricketer world knew ..speech in UN was poor," Ganguly replied on Sehwag's tweet.

American media criticised Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for his impropriety and Virender Sehwag posted that perticular clip on his official Twitter handle and captioned it, "You sound like a welder from the Bronx, says the anchor. After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago , this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself."

The former cricketer turned politician had mocked the infrastructure in the United States, stating, "You have to go to China and see the way their infrastructure is. In New York, I am watching the car bumping around here."

The American media slammed Imran Khan by saying, "You don't sound like the prime minister of Pakistan, you sound like a welder from the Bronx".

Previously, Indian cricketers Harbhajan Singh, Mohammed Shami and Irfan Pathan also blasted Pakistani prime minister for his speech at the UN.

"Mahatma Gandhi spent his life spreading the message of love, harmony and peace. @ImranKhanPTI from UN podium issued despicable threats and spoke of hatred. Pakistan needs a leader who talks development, jobs & economic growth, not war & harbouring terrorism #india," Shami tweeted.

"At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan's choice of words 'bloodbath' 'fight to the end' will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson I expect him to promote peace," Harbhajan tweeted.

After Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the UNGA, India had retorted saying his threat of unleashing nuclear weapon "qualifies as brinkmanship not statesmanship".
