As a part of the meeting, she spoke of how she felt the people of Pakistan were very welcoming and went out of their way to make her stay comfortable on getting to know she was from India.
On her return from Pakistan to India, she blamed Manohar Parrikar and said that, “Pakistan is a good country, not hell. Parrikar’s comments (that going to Pakistan or hell is the same thing) are not true.”
