Earlier, Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar had also appreciated Pakistan’s gesture of evacuating 11 of Indian nationals from strife-torn Yemen and flying them to India by a special aircraft.“It was a very positive, good, generous gesture,” Mr Jaishankar told reporters when asked to comment on the evacuation of Indians by Pakistan, as per PTI. “Pakistan took great trouble and we need to appreciate that,” he added. Mr Jaishankar said the crisis like in Yemen provided an opportunity for countries to work together and noted that India too had evacuated 409 nationals of 32 countries, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. The Indians were among 182 people who were brought to Karachi on Tuesday after being evacuated from Mukalla in Yemen. After their arrival in Karachi, Prime Minister Sharif had offered a special plane to ferry them to Delhi, an offer which was accepted by India.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
