Former High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria appointed as new envoy to Canada
New Delhi/IBNS: Ajay Bisaria, India’s former high commissioner to Pakistan, has been appointed as the country's new envoy to Canada, officials said on Friday.
"He is expected to take up the assignment shortly," the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
He is a 1987 batch IFS officer.
It is worth mentioning that Pakistan last August had asked Ajay Bisaria to leave Pakistan as it decided to downgrade the diplomatic ties with India after New Delhi decided to abrogate Article 370 that gave special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
Since then Bisaria has been camping in Delhi and he did coordinate with the MEA during the operationalising of Kartarpur Corridor on Nov 9, 2019.
In Indian High Commission in Islamabad, Charge d’Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia is at present heading the Indian mission.
