Labour MP Khalid Mahmood (my local MP), whose family originate from Mirpur, said: “It’s a great idea that will bring the two cities closer together.
The plan is to run 4 coaches once a fortnight. The journey will take about 12 days, with opportunities for sightseeing, camping and restaurant visits along the way. The cost will be around £130 – (The current cost of an air ticket for the same journey is around £600) – which should make it a popular option
The only drawback is . . . one of the cities the bus will be passing through is Quetta near the Afghan border – where Taliban commanders are rumoured to be hiding out, so you might want to keep one eye on the sky for US drones heading in your direction.
Oh, and did I mention the buses will also be passing through Iran?
Just thought You might want to bear these sort of things in mind before getting on the bus
