Nitish invites Sharif to Bihar

Patna, May 20, 2013, PTI:

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has congratulated Pakistan Prime Minister-designate Nawaz Sharif on his decisive electoral victory and invited him to visit Bihar.

“Let me extend to you my warmest congratulations on your decisive electoral victory even in these trying times,” Kumar, who met Sharif during his visit to Pakistan last year, said in a letter dated May 13 and made available to the press on Monday.

“Your electoral performance augurs well for the furtherance of relations between the two countries and what we can together do to improve the economics and politics of both the countries and the region as a whole. Your bold and innovative approach can be decisive catalyst,” he said.

Kumar fondly remembered a meeting with Sharif when he had visited Pakistan in November last year and renewed invitation to him to visit Bihar whenever he comes to India.

“I greatly look to continuing our dialogue which commenced in Lahore and to build on the numerous avenues constructive cooperation between the two countries and with the people of Bihar,” he said.

Kumar wrote another letter to cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan and congratulated him for the ‘spectacular performance’ of his party.
