Karachi: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, who is on a visit to Karachi along with a 12-member delegation in an effort to strengthen ties between the two nuclear-powered countries, have been given a warm welcome and the highest level of security.
Kumar was accorded a red carpet welcome as he arrived here on Friday on a week-long visit. Sindh chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah received him at the airport.
For moving around Pakistan's financial hub, Kumar has been given a black bulletproof limo that President Zardari uses when he is in Karachi. Moreover, the five-star hotel that he'll be staying at over the next three days has been transformed into a fortress.
