Shiv Sena opposes Pak PM`s proposed visit
New Delhi: Shiv Sena on Tuesday strongly opposed the upcoming visit of Pakistan Prime Minister Parvez Ashraf to India, saying he should be allowed here only if he gets the severed head of the Indian soldier killed on the Line of Control (LoC) in January.
The government "should not roll out the red carpet for the Pakistani Prime Minister till he gets back the severed head of the Indian soldier killed on the LoC," senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said here.
He said all political parties should oppose the visit of Ashraf to India.
Ashraf is scheduled to visit India on Saturday to offer prayers at the Sufi shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti at Ajmer.
Pakistani troops had carried out a cross-LoC attack on January 8, killing two Indian soldiers, one whom was beheaded. India has since been pressing for return of the severed head.
