As Twitterati took aim at Prime Minister Imran Khan over absence of state protocol to him on arrival in the US, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah Sunday threw his weight behind Imran, saying he had saved Pakistan’s money. Quoting a tweet by Pakistan-based journalist Fawad Rehman, who posted the video of Khan’s arrival, Abdullah said the reported absence of a state protocol to Khan “reflects badly” on the Donald Trump administration. “He saved his country money it didn’t need to spend AND didn’t wear his ego on his sleeve as most “leaders” do. Remind me again why that’s a bad thing. This reflects badly on the American establishment rather than on @ImranKhanPTI IMO,” the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister tweeted.
