Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was supposed to meet former Pakistan cricketer and current Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, according to a tweet by Pakistan’s federal minister for railway Khwaja Saad Rafique. However, the tweet has turned out to be fake and Khwaja Saad Rafique has denied having a Twitter account.

The Twitter account from which the tweet was posted, has said that the account was operated by Team PMLN, and not by Khawaja Saad Rafique himself.


Below is the tweet which announced Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s decision to meet Imran Khan.

Imran Khan has played 88 Test matches, and 175 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for Pakistan, and was arguably among the best all-rounders the game has ever seen. He was also one of the finest leaders Pakistan cricket has ever witnessed, and led the side to a memorable 1992 World Cup title.
