Pak synonymous to 'betrayal': Shiv Sena after Pak takes U-turn on beating retreat ceremony

New Delhi, Nov 04 (ANI): Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday said that Pakistan is synonymous to the word 'betrayal', after the nuclear armed neighbour took a U-turn over the understanding with India on the beating retreat ceremony post Wagah border attack. Pak Rangers at the Attari-Wagah border caught their Indian counterparts off-guard as they decided to go ahead with traditional beating the retreat ritual with full gusto. Raut said that the understanding was made keeping in view the lives lost in Pakistan but it did not follow the same. He said that Pakistan will always behave like that India should stop maintaining cordial relations with the nation. Nov 4, 2014
