Indian steel tycoon Sajjan Jindal meets PM Nawaz ... 01:53 PM | 27 Apr, 2017
ISLAMABAD - Indian steel magnate Sajjan Jindal met prime minister Nawaz Sharif during a secret visit to Pakistan, ...
Through a tweet, she expressed that Jindal was an old friend of the premier and the meeting should not be blown out of proportion.
Mr. Jindal is an old friend of the Prime Minister. Nothing 'secret' about the meeting & should not be blown out of proportion. Thank you.— Maryam Nawaz Sharif (@MaryamNSharif) April 27, 2017
It bears mentioning that a report aired on ARY News suggested that Sajjan Jindal along with his two friends arrived in Pakistan on Wednesday after taking off from Kabul. The trio then went to Murree where they called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, successfully avoiding the media spotlight.
Not only that, a picture of Jindal's passport showed that the Pakistani visa was issued to him on April 25 for 10 days. Despite being granted a visa to travel to Lahore and Islamabad only, the Indian delegation met the prime minister in Murree, apparently bypassing the visa restrictions.
Jindal's interaction with premier Nawaz Sharif is being considered something of an extraordinary importance citing the recent developments including death sentence to RAW spy Kalbushan Jadhav and the confessional video of TTP spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan in which he categorically admitted links of the militant group with Indian spy agency RAW.
