Mumbai, July 24: Are the Pakistani authorities ready to work with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi? The country's envoy, Salman Bashir, reportedly told Times Now news channel about this just ahead of the visit of top officials from the Nawaz Sharif government to India.
According to the channel report, the Pakistani government has taken a pragmatic approach to buy power from Gujarat to deal with the severe electricity crisis. Bashir said technical officials from Pakistan visited two power plants in Gujarat regarding this.
Bashir, however, said that the prevailing obstacles in the bilateral relations between the two neighbours need to be sorted out for a power project to move ahead. He said the dialogue process must move forward. The matter may witness further development during the Pakistani delegates' visit to India next month.
Will Gujarat play a central role in a crucial energy cooperation between the two neighbours who don't share the best of relations?
