New Delhi, April 8 (PTI): Sonia Gandhi today skipped the lunch the Prime Minister hosted for Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari apparently because of ill health.
The Congress president sent a letter of regret apparently citing ill health, sources said.
Later, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi declined to give reasons for Sonia’s absence. “Media should stop reading grand plans or conspiracies into trivial non issues,” he said.
“These are normal exigencies found in the course of state governance and administration. There could be 101 reasons for absence and she is not obliged to provide explanation and reasons,” he added.
