    Isn’t that a shame that wherever PM goes he is welcomed mostly by Pakistani officials or a low level local government official. That was the case at his arrival at Washington and Paris is no different.Recommend

    For the family that has been cutting trees all over Punjab, it is ironical that they should be thinking of climate change. Can’t get more cynical. Recommend
