NEW DELHI: Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari is likely to visit Ajmer on April 8 to pay obeisance at the shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti.

The visit is intended to be purely for religious purposes. However, the government here is looking for a possibility to add some political discussions during his day-long visit.

"While as of now, the visit is purely for religious purposes, efforts are being made so that some political discussions could also take place during the day-long trip of Zardari," sources said.

The Pakistan president had last met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of the SCO summit in Russia in 2009.

The sources feel that as it happens in India-Pakistan relationship, many decisions would be taken closer to the date of Zardari's visit.
