PM invites Imran over ‘a cup of tea’

By Majeed Gill

BAHAWALPUR: Terming the May 11 agitation call uncalled for, Nawaz Sharif extended an invitation on Friday to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan for a dialogue at the Prime Minister’s House.

Hollow war and peace vows stall National Assembly

By Raja Asghar

ISLAMABAD: Two days before the government is to face a potentially major street challenge from the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), both rivals spent another day in the National Assembly on Friday making vows of war and peace at the cost of other business that provoked a government ally to protest “this tamasha”.

Tirades from PTI vice-chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique centring on PTI’s planned march on Sunday did not allow for the resumption of a debate on the prevailing law and order situation, before the house was adjourned for a two-day weekend.

Modi heading for defeat in key UP battle: Kejriwal

By Jawed Naqvi

NEW DELHI: That a battery of senior party colleagues is escorting him in Varanasi could mean two things for Narendra Modi. Either he is in need of a last-minute thrust to stay clear of trouble, or he is in a mood to do a victory dance even before the first vote is cast, which will be on May 12.

Mr Modi’s opponent, the Aam Aadmi Party’s Arvind Kejriwal, propounded a theory on Friday. Mr Modi is staring at defeat, he said, and Mr Kejriwal would be the person to inflict it. “Why did no senior leader go to Vadodra?” Mr Kejriwal wondered in a chat with CNN-IBN. What he meant was that Vadodra in Gujarat was an easier race for Mr Modi and he was more confident of winning in the state of which he is chief minister.
