Thackeray changes stand on Pak, backs Vajpayee's Lahore trip
Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray has extended his support for Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's bus trip to Lahore.
Addressing the media on Tuesday, Thackeray said, ''There is no no harm in trying to maintain good relations with Pakistan. We always wanted good relations with the country.''
''I convey my best wishes for the PM's goodwill visit to Pakistan,'' the Sena chief added.
When asked about his sudden change of stand over the issue after his staunch opposition to the cricket matches to be played by the Pakistani players in India, Thackeray said, ''Opposing cricket to be played by them is different from trying to maintain good relations with the country.''
