The Bharatiya Janata Party president will visit the mausoleum of the Quaid-e-Azam after his arrival in Sindh, which will be followed by a reception to be hosted by St Patrick’s School where Mr Advani had his education before migrating to India after partition.
According to officials of St Patrick’s School, Mr Advani would be presented with many gifts, including an album carrying pictures of olden days.
Hakim Ali Zardari, a senior politician and father-in-law of Benazir Bhutto, will host a luncheon for him. According to Mr Zardari, he had great respect for Mr Advani and his luncheon, which he called a private party, would be a manifestation of this.
