New Delhi, Jan. 10: Congress president Sonia Gandhi was conspicuous by her absence on the concluding day of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas jointly organised by the foreign ministry and Ficci.
The leader of Opposition was to take part in a special interactive session with representatives of the Indian diaspora attending the two-day event here this evening. She skipped the meet. The Congress chief, however, attended the reception.
A senior party leader attributed her decision to stay away from the meet to an “inappropriate” and “delayed” invitation.
