 Musharraf writes to Bhat, keen on meeting
The Pakistan President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, has written to the All-Party Hurriyat Conference chairman, Prof. Abdul Ghani Bhat, expressing a desire to meet the APHC leaders during his coming visit to India. The Hurriyat also hopes for a similar response from New Delhi.

 We have to study report: DGP
In the absence of a ``deadline'' for responding to the Centre's ``warning'' issued to the Tamil Nadu Government on last week's unseemly developments, there seems to be no great hurry in replying to what the State considers a ``serious challenge'' to its powers and rights.

A non-issue, says India
Though conceding that the Pakistan President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf's letter to the APHC chairman, Prof. Abdul Ghani Bhat, does complicate things, the view within the Vajpayee Government is that ``it is no big deal'' and the General's purported desire for a meeting with the APHC should not be allowed to detract or derail the high purpose of the summit.

All States to adopt VAT by next April
With almost all the States agreeing to move over to the Value Added Tax (VAT) system from April 1, 2002, the Centre today promised to look into any possible revenue loss that they might incur and suggested that a compensation package be worked out.

'Pak. will be guided by India's wishes'
Pakistan is not likely to make an issue of a meeting between Hurriyat leaders and the Pakistan President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, during his visit to India.

 'Messenger of peace' freed
After his release from Pakistan's captivity, the round-the-world Indian cyclist and peace missionary, Mr. Vikas Singh, walked to freedom at the Attari-Wagah joint checkpost this evening.

More time for one-on-one meetings
The Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Behari Vajpayee, and the Pakistan President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, are likely to be engaged in four-and-a-half hours of crucial discussions on July 15 at Agra when they meet for summit dialogue.

BJP not impressed by Pak. offer
The offer of Pakistan President, General Pervez Musharraf, of a ``no-war pact'' with India has not impressed the BJP.
