Royal protocol to Krishna by Rehman Malik and Shahbaz Sharif
Islamabad, Sept 10 News Desk (www.pakdestiny.com) Both the PPP and PML-N governments gave royal reception to Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna during his three-day visit to Islamabad and Lahore ended on Sunday.
Rehman Malik and Shahbaz Sharif provided him with a kind of security Krishna could have never thought of. Both PPP and PML-N leaders were on the same page ‘protecting’ their ‘Indian’ guest from any terror threat as huge caravan of security accompanied him during his stay. Then why they differ on other issues?
All the venues Mr Krishna visited in Lahore including Data Darbar, Minar-i-Pakistan and Gurdwara Darbar Sahib they were cordoned off in order to ‘avert any untoward incident’. After all Shahbaz could not have afforded any risk in the face of anti-India force, the banned Lashkar-i-Tayyaba. “The security and reception given to Krishna is not less than to the one given to a US top by the PPP government. So the Indian minister must appreciate PPP and PML-N’s gesture back home,” a senior journalist comments. www.pakdestiny.com
