Call for Indian PM Modi to send all party delegation headed by former PM Manmohan Singh to Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - Senior Indian Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi has called Indian PM Modi to send an all party delgation headed by former PM Manmohan Singh to Pakistan.

She suggested that an all-party delegation constituted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Manmohan Singh as the head could be sent for the inaugural ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor after Pakistan decided to invite the former PM for the event, India TV has reported.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Monday that his country has decided to invite Singh to attend the inaugural ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor.

Reacting to this, Singhvi said in a tweet: "Pakistan's invite to Dr Manmohan Singh, I suggest to the government of India, Prime Minister and Home Minister: send all-party delegation to Pakistan. Whole country to show solidarity qua Pakistan."

"PM to personally constitute such delegation of selected individuals. Even more significant than P V Narsimha Rao nomination of (Atal Bihari) Vajpayee to head UN delgation," he said.

"I meant PM should request Dr Manmohan Singh to head this multi individual delegation to Pakistan," Singhvi, a Congress spokesperson, said in another tweet.
