Pak rail minister continues attack on India
February 22, 2007 18:15 IST
India has slammed Pakistan Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed's tirade against New
Delhi's alleged non-cooperative attitude in providing details of the victims of the Samjhauta Express blast.
Continuing his attack against Indian officials, Rashid on Thursday said no information was being provided by India about the dead and his efforts to get in touch with Indian railway officials proved futile.
He said the Indo-Pak peace process was confined to a privileged class and has not percolated to masses and added that Indian officials were not forthcoming with any details.
However, Indian officials in Islamabad expressed surprise as to why the Pakistan railway minister was not getting in touch with his own foreign office, which is coordinating the relief work with its high commission in New Delhi as well as the Indian government.
"He should get in touch with his own foreign office," an Indian official retorted when asked for his reaction.
