tests in May 1998 in a strategic masterstroke to blunt Pakistan's nuclear
ambitions while at the same time announcing a moratorium on future testing. Moreover

direct bus from India to Pakistan in February 1999. He was undeterred by party
hawks, Vajpayee arrived in Lahore on the bus, accompanied among others by
legendary actor Dev Anand.
