Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will not visit Colombo for the Commonwealth Heads of State meeting next week. Instead, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid will head the Indian delegation to the summit. The decision of the PM skipping the meet came more than 24 hours after the Congress core group - which includes the PM, party president Sonia Gandhi and senior ministers - met to take a call on the politically sensitive issue.
