Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is unlikely to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka reports Indian media.
Congress sources have told media that the party has insisted that Manmohan Singh should skip CHOGM to be held in Colombo.
The party decision will be communicated to the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs which will meet on Saturday. A final announcement is expected after the meeting.
Earlier, a meeting of the Congress headed by party president Sonia Gandhi deliberated over the issue for more than one hour where the stand was formulated.
