To economise the cost of the visit, the High Commission has booked 8-seater vans for the delegates which would cost three times less than luxury cars. Food has been arranged for the delegates from a Pakistani restaurant at an unbelievable price for which even one cannot buy a sandwich in London .
The British Government will provide car and a backup car for the President during his stay in London . To economise the cost, the President will visit Birmingham by car to address community meeting on August 7.
