Pak envoy lauds CM for ‘transforming West Bengal’

‘I must compliment the leadership here, particularly the chief minister, for the wonderful work in transforming the lives of ordinary people. ‘We have followed the story of Bengal and we appreciate and applaud the great progress the state has made,’ the outgoing Pakistani High Commissioner to India told mediapersons after a hour-long meeting with Ms Banerjee on Monday.

Applauding the state leadership, Bashir acknowledged Banerjee’s commitment towards enhancing India’s ties with Pakistan.

‘I am touched and impressed by her commitment for working towards greater interaction and better relations between India and Pakistan,’ he said. He invited the CM to visit Pakistan.

‘She has never been to Pakistan and expressed her desire to visit the country and I welcome her and hope we will have more exchanges in various fields which will enhance the relations between West Bengal and Pakistan,’ he said.

Banerjee later said Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif has invited her to visit his country.
