New Delhi:

Amid India-Pakistan blame game at high-level United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session in New York, Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday trained his gun at the Imran Khan-led government in Pakistan.

In a veiled attack on the PTI leader and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Rajya Sabha MP said there was no point holding talks with Pakistan as the neighbouring country is run by the “ISI, military and terrorists”.

"No use talking to Pakistan and I think that Sushma Swaraj should not waste her breath speaking about Pakistan at the UN because Pakistan gets psychic pleasure when India abuses them. Just ignore Pakistan," Swamy was quoted by saying as ANI.

Swamy was addressing a press conference in Tripura's Agartala and further said Imran Khan was the prime minister of Pakistan only on paper.

On being asked about the infiltration of terrorists into India by Pakistan, Swamy said, “Imran Khan is nothing but a ‘chaprasi’ (peon). He may be called the Prime Minister but he just one of the peons of the Pakistan govt".

After being elected Pakistan Prime Minister in August this year, Khan wrote a letter to his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, seeking a meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan on the sidelines of United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session in September.

However, India later rejected to his call for the resumption of the “peace dialogue” in wake of the "brutal" killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistan-based entities and the release of postal stamps glorifying terrorist Burhan Wani.

Addressing a press conference, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar confirmed that "the recent developments show that any dialogue with Pakistan is meaningless."
