Punjab Governor Salman Taseer sent a bouquet of red roses to PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif as a friendly gesture on the occasion of Valentine’s Day, a private TV channel reported on Sunday.

Valentine’s Day may or may not have been celebrated in a befitting manner in the City but the Governor House did it, reported TheNation.

Red roses are exchanged in the West and elsewhere on Valentine’s Day as an indication of of love and affection. Only recently the celebration of Valentine’s Day has caught up in Pakistan.

Governor Taseer also forwarded a message of “friendship and love” to the PML-N leader.
The PPP-backed Punjab governor also thanked Nawaz for “criticising him” during a news conference in Islamabad.

Talking to journalists, Taseer said he was thankful to the PML-N chief for “mentioning him” during his news conference in Islamabad.

Nawaz Sharif addressed a press conference at Punjab House in capital Islamabad after a three-hour meeting of his party PML-N, in which he called on Zardari to implement the Supreme Court’s verdict on the National Reconciliation Ordinance and “return the money in Swiss accounts to the national exchequer”.

Taseer termed the democratic system in Pakistan a model for the entire world, where the media enjoyed complete freedom and the government was following the policy of reconciliation.
