Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday hit out at Prime Minister Imran Khan for resorting to "personal attacks" and "name calling."

Earlier in the day, the premier had called out Iqbal and his party's previous government for causing the country's debt crisis.

Without naming the former interior minister, PM Imran said: "How can such [opposition] leaders stand in the National Assembly and lie to the public just to defend their government's tenure."

Iqbal spoke out on Twitter, saying that the prime minister had "stooped down to a new low in politics".

He tweeted: “This is a new low in our politics with PM Imran Khan resorting to personal attacks and name calling against me in a meeting of diplomats and businessmen.”

Iqbal castigated the premier saying that "no wonder his ministers try to copy him in slander and lies".

Ranjha | 1 year ago | Reply Ahsan Iqbal is a failed lecturer good only at producing shallow Powerpoint slides with stupid arrows pointing in all directions. The fake intellectual is the best "scholar" the corrupt and inept Sharif regime had to offer.
