Former Pakistan PM Imran Khan tweeted, "Despite being part of the quad, India bypassed US pressure and bought discounted oil from Russia to provide relief to the masses." He also praised Indian foreign policy.

In another tweet, he quoted the current government led by Pakistan Muslim League (N) and wrote “For our government, Pakistan's interest was paramount but unfortunately the local Mir Jafars & Mir Sadiqs bowed to external pressure forcing a regime change, and are now running around like a headless chicken with the economy in a tailspin.”

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tweeted that the central excise duty on petrol was being reduced by Rs 8/litre and on diesel by Rs 6/litre. Sitharaman said that with this, the government would incur a fiscal deficit of around Rs one lakh crore per annum.

The Union Minister appealed to the states to give similar concessions to the people, especially those who did not make such deductions in the previous round (November 2021).
