Pakistan's foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said that India is both "rich and evil at the same time". During an interview, when mentioned that India is the world's fifth largest economy and its recent move to remove to revoke Article 370, Bilawal Bhutto said "you can be rich and evil at the same time".
"You can be rich and evil at the same time. That doesn't change reality," he said in an interview while talking about India's move to remove the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan owes 30 per cent of its foreign debt to China, according to the latest report from International Monetary Fund (IMF). Pakistan, at the moment, is facing one of its biggest economic crises, as it is on the brink of defaults and diplomatic isolation.
The country is overburdened by loans from China and faced hard negotiations in its bid for support from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
'CHINESE OUR ALL-WEATHER FRIENDS'

"As far as Pakistan and China's relations are concerned, they're called "all-weather friends" for a reason: The Chinese have always been our all-weather friends throughout our history," he said.
“Obviously, when you do development to that scale, there is debt," he added.


Pakistan owes a debt of $30 billion to China, from $25.1 billion in February, Geo News reported quoting the IMF report.
Islamabad managed to secure a much-needed bailout package from the IMF in September when the Fund's executive board approved the release of $1.1 billion to Pakistan - averting the threat of imminent default.
Devalued currency, rising inflation and the worst balance of payments, all these which triggered a political crisis, could be the possible reasons for this situation along with the fact that it was being outperformed in most sectors by India.
Economic Survey of Pakistan (2021-22) shows the country’s deep economic ties with China.

At the same time, when Pakistan is facing an acute financial crisis, the budget for defence has increased immensely. There has been an increase in defence budget by 11 per cent, contrary the budget for Education, Housing, and Health has been cut drastically. This indicates the deviation from welfare-oriented schemes for the people of Pakistan.

Rich is always relative. An american plumber is pretty rich for any of south asian worker. But for an average swiss, he is pretty poor.

Likewise, Indian government is pretty rich if you look at Pakistan's perspective. But it is absolutely poor if you look from Chinese government or American government perspective. Most likely Pakistan's FM is only talking about government. Who cares about people anyways? Not the Pakistan's government atleast.

Look, you can be all salted but it is YOUR OWN FM that is talking here, so Pakistan is indeed in context.

India is not rich, dont go by the literal meaning of his statement in english..
Indian government is fairly rich. It is one of the few governments in the world that can afford a nuclear program, a space program and its own fighter jet program without going bankrrupt. That is Rich. Indian government is rich ruling over vast number of poor people.

Look at the list of governments by revenue : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_government_budget

India ranks 8th in countries by govt revenue. Thats rich government. Pakistan's government is at #56. So yes, it is totally understandable if Pakistan's FM says India is rich. Indian government is indeed VERY VERY rich compared to Pakistan's.

Talk about the living conditions of an average person, not the accumulation of wealth by a few to skew the numbers - besides it has nothing to do with Pakistan.
LOL! What living condition?

Pakistan is 29 points below India in UN's human development index (hdi) 2022 rankings.
