What was the immediate reason for Ahmad Shah Abdali to invade India and fight the Third Battle of Panipat?
|A||He wanted to avenge the expulsion by Marathas of his viceroy Timur Shah from Lahore|
|B||The frustrated governor of Jullundhar Adina Beg Khan invited him to invade Punjab|
|C||He wanted to punish Mughal administration for non-payment of the revenues of the Chahar Mahal (Gujarat, Aurangabad, Sialkot and Pasrur)|
|D||He wanted to annex all the fertile plains of Punjab up to the borders of Delhi to his kingdom|
The Maratha conquest of the Punjab from the Afghans was a direct challenge to Abdali and the latter decided to accept it.
