Solution

The correct option is C 1757
Ahmed Shah Abdali in his fourth invasion to India entered Delhi and installed Allamgir II as Mughal emperor, while the real power was given to Rohilla Chief Najib Ad Dwallah for his help to Ahmed Shah. Under these circumstances the Mughal Wazir Imad Ul Mulk asked for Maratha assistance to ward of Abdali's dominance. Marathas eager to increase their influence in Northern India readily marched to Delhi and with help of Imad ul Mulk defeated Rohilla chief. This made Marthas the De facto rulers of Delhi and laid foundation for their further conquest of Punjab and Multan.
