NEW DELHI: A day after he skipped a lunch for Saarc min­is­ters in Is­lam­abad, home min­is­ter Ra­j­nath Singh said he did it for the coun­try’s ‘maryada (pres­tige)’. Singh told Ra­jya Sabha that Pak­istan in­te­rior min­is­ter Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan in­vited the vis­it­ing min­is­ters for lunch “but soon after invit­ing us, he sat in a car and went off ”. “Keep­ing in view the norms of con­duct, I did what was nec­es­sary for the sake of In­dia’s dig­nity,” he said.
