India recently called off the proposed talks between MEA Sushma Swaraj and Pakistan foreign minister at the sidelines of the upcoming UNGA meeting in the United States after kidnapping and killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian.
The newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, is mighty displeased with the decision. He took to Twitter to say, “all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture.”
Disappointed at the arrogant & negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue. However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture.

Indians were amused with the haughty statement issued by Imran Khan who is widely believed to have been elected Prime Minister with assistance from the Pakistani Military and took potshots at the former cricketer.
Obviously , what else can you come across in Pakistan

In an actual democracy, small men can rise to big offices without the crutches of the Army. No surprises it is an alien concept for Imran Khan. https://t.co/r2ifXRgG9O

Typical Pakistani doublespeak! No action against India centric terror 10 years after 26/11 & they want India to resume dialogue. Sadly for Pakistan @ImranKhanPTI speaking with a forked tongue is being exposed. The mask is off & Taliban Khan stands exposed! https://t.co/LrReCdsVGA

How modest of @ImranKhanPTI, the big guy from Oxford and all, occupying a big office, the reins of which are held by the #Pakistan Army! True, only pawns and puppets of the Pakistani Army can have the vision to see the larger picture. ? https://t.co/t5fAb10Xk7

Others called on Prime Minister Modi to revoke Pakistan’s MFN status in light of the insulting tweet.
Read @ImranKhanPTI ‘s highly abusive tweet.
He has crossed the red line.
What India need to do just now is to withdraw MFN status from Pak, scrap Indus Water Treaty and recall Indian HC from Pak and expel Pak HC to India.
It’s Q of Bharat’s self-respect. https://t.co/0xkSLYAopK

People are concluding after Imran Khan’s tweet that the relationship between the two countries is likely to go further downhill from here.
Pakistan PM responds to MEA statement on exposing his “real face”. It can only go downhill from here. https://t.co/jMPwRR40a3

Imran Khan’s tweet gives one the impression that Pakistan does not regret funding terror organizations in its proxy war against India. His tweet is also a slap on the face of Opposition political leaders like Navjot Singh Sidhu who were overly optimistic about Imran Khan assuming the mantle of Prime Minister of Pakistan. After attending his oath-taking ceremony and hugging the Pakistani Army Chief, it will be interesting to see how Sidhu reacts after Khan insulted India’s democratically elected Prime Minister.
