New Delhi: Congress on Monday tried to explain
Rahul Gandhi representing the party at the lunch hosted by
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for Pakistan President Asif
Zardari saying Sonia Gandhi could have skipped it as "may be
she was unwell".
"I am surprised that how all of you are speculating on
something as innocuous as this. You are forgetting firstly
that from the Congress party Shri Rahul Gandhi was there.
"And we do not know the reasons - there could be 101
reasons, maybe she was unwell, I don`t see any reason or right
to anybody to start speculating like this. I think it is best
left at that," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters
at the AICC briefing.
