Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, after his highly successful 8-day trip to Pakistan where he met with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and the Chief Ministers of Sind and Punjab besides being able to visit a number of historical sites, returned to Patna on Saturday afternoon amidst hearty welcome by party members and supporters from both Janata Dal – U and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Nearly a hundred people, including Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, Vijay Kumar Chowdhary, Shyam Rajak, Renu Kumari, Ramai Ram, Jitan Ram Manjhi, Amir Subhani, DGP Abhayanand, Poonam Devi, Sanjay Mayukh, Sanjay Singh, Ganga Prasad, and Gyanendra Singh Gyanu, welcomed the Chief Minister at the state hangar with rose bouquets and warm hugs that lasted for nearly half an hour.

BJP state president Dr. C. P. Thakur, in a message to the Chief Minister, congratulated him on his successful trip to the neighboring country and praised the Pakistani government for extending such warm welcome to the leader from Bihar.

Speaking to the reporters, Kumar said that he was extremely pleased with his trip and thanked the Pakistani administration for giving a warm reception to him and his delegates.

"One thing that is quite clear to me is that everyone in Pakistan wants to have cordial, friendly relationship with India. Just as we wish for better diplomatic and cultural ties with our neighbor, Pakistani also yearn for peace between the two nations," the Chief Minister said.

Recalling his experience during his visits to ancient sites of Taxila and Mohan-jo-Daro in Pakistan, Kumar said that he was immensely inspired by the experience and felt he had learnt and grown a lot by seeing these historical sites for the first time with his own eyes.

The Chief Minister further said that his meetings with Zardari, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, and the Chief Minister and Governor of Sind and Punjab respectively was very enlightening and would remain in his memories for the rest of his life.
