BJP MP from East Delhi and former India opener Gautam Gambhir has lashed out at the UNGA speech by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. He wrote that Imran spoke up as a role model for terrorists in a hard- hitting tweet.
Sportspeople are supposed to be role models. Of good behavior. Of Team spirit. Of ethics. Of strength of character. Recently in the UN, we also saw a former sportsperson speak up. As a role model for terrorists. @ImranKhanPTI should be excommunicated from sports community.

The 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 ICC World Cup winner also pointed out the sharp difference in speeches made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Imran Khan in another tweet . He wrote that Imran was Pakistan army’s puppet and who threatened nuclear war.
The time allotted to each country is 15 minutes. What one does with it shows character and intellect. @narendramodi Ji chose to talk about peace and development while Pakistan Army’s puppet threatened a nuclear war. He is the same man who claims to promote peace in Kashmir.#UNGA
