UK PM's office clarifies after he confuses farmers' protest with Indo-Pak dispute

In a major gaffe, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson seemed to have been confused between the ongoing farmers' protests in India and the India-Pakistan dispute. Responding to question on the ongoing farmer protests in India, the PM replied with UK government’s stance on the dispute between India and Pakistan being a bilateral one. Sikh Labour MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, who has been on the forefront of raising the issue of Indian farmers’ agitation against the Modi government's agricultural reforms, asked Boris Johnson a question on the topic in the House of Commons during the weekly Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) session.
