After passing the resolution, the opposition Pakistan People’s Party leaders asked the government some tough question about its handling of the Kashmir issue. PPP Senator Sherry Rehman slammed Pakistan’s foreign policy, asking: “Why are we not able to mount a serious, sustained, protracted defence of the federation of Pakistan?”

“Kashmir is one of the most important issues for us regarding our foreign policy… You cannot build your foreign policy through one speech,” Rehman said, referring to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s UNGA speech. Senior PPP leader Khursheed Shah said that it would have been better if the Prime Minister was also present during the session.

PPP leader Aitezaz Ahsan said that the day the Prime Minister utters Indian spy Khulbhushan Yadav’s name from his mouth, he will donate Rs 50,000 to a trust for blind persons. The joint session was adjourned for an undeclared period. On Wednesday, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told the joint session of Parliament that the Kashmir “liberation struggle” has taken a new turn after the “martyrdom” of militant commander Burhan Wani.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
