Karachi: Nitish Kumar pays homage to Jinnah
Nitish Kumar said during his goodwill visit he would share his experiences on development projects in Bihar.

Karachi: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday visited mausoleum of Mohammad Ali Jinnah to pay homage to the founder of Pakistan. Accompanied by the Chief Minister of Sindh province, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Kumar laid floral wreaths at the mazar and both the provincial heads stressed on the need for peace and brotherhood between the two countries. "I believe that Pakistan and India need to work together and exist peacefully with each other. This will not only guarantee prosperity and development for both countries but also for the entire region," Kumar told reporters outside the Mazar.

Kumar, who arrived in Karachi on Friday on a week-long visit to Pakistan, said during his goodwill visit he would share his experiences on development projects in Bihar. The Sindh CM said that both countries shared a lot in common and it was natural for them to have good relations. "We share a lot in common in culture and traditions and we need to build on this. I invited Mr Kumar to visit our province because I believe that the more we have such visits between provincial heads it will increase cooperation between the two nations," he said.

Kumar will also be visiting Lahore and Islamabad on his tour. A Sindh government spokesman said that steps had been taken to provide foolproof security for the visiting Indian delegation. "We are aware of the importance of this visit by the Bihar CM and we see his coming here as an opportunity to foster better relations between Pakistan and India and also enhance business and economic cooperation," the spokesman said.
