He is only coming to of­fer prayers at Ajmer. He will reach Ajmer di­rectly,” he told re­porters out­side Par­lia­ment house. He was asked whether the Pak­istan prime min­is­ter would hold talks with In­dian lead­ers. “He will pos­si­bly be re­ceived by the (Ra­jasthan Gov­er­nor (Mar­garet Alva). There is no fur­ther pro­gramme and I am not aware of any pro­gramme,” Khur­shid said.

This is likely to be Ashraf’s last for­eign visit be­fore the term of his government ends on March 16.
