Sadiq Khan: Prime Minister got it 'badly wrong' over Indian student visas

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan accompanied by the British High Commissioner to Pakistan Thomas Drew met the Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif in Lahore on Wednesday and discussed matters of mutual interest & bilateral relations.

London's mayor, on a six day trip to India and Pakistan, called on Mrs May to reinstate the post-study work visas she scrapped in 2012. Khan is expected to stop over in Karachi and Islamabad.

Sadiq Khan said that Pakistan and London share a long and unique history that has had a profound influence on shaping our respective societies, economies, and cultures.

He wrote, "The Pakistani community makes a tremendous contribution to our city".

We're going to go out and find them and find the right guys, the right guys that are going to come here and do the right things. Taggart said it was a hard decision to leave OR , because the people were so nice there.

The mayor was received by officials from the Punjab government upon his arrival and is now holding a meeting with Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Model Town.

Sadiq Khan is leading a trade mission under the theme "London Is Open" to both India and Pakistan and is flanked by a 16-member delegation.

All this traffic can travel direct with a non-stop British Airways flight between London-Amritsar, according to the memorandum, adding that this would lead to a major increase in business apart from making British Airways more popular among the large Punjabi population settled all over the world. "I look forward to strengthening our ties and showing #LondonIsOpen to Pakistan's talent, business and ideas".

After the event, Sadiq Khan thanked Lahore mayor for hosting a cultural event on London mayor's arrival.
