India boycotts pakistan day event in Delhi

Srinagar: India is not sending any official representative to a reception at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi today ahead of Pakistan’s National Day as Hurriyat leaders from Jammu and Kashmir were also invited, reports quoting sources said.

30-odd Hurriyat leaders have been invited by Pakistan, top government sources told NDTV. “This is double speak by Pakistan and it is a direct indication that they are again meddling in the internal affairs of India and that is why the government has decided not to send any representative,” a senior government official told NDTV.
India’s boycott of the event hosted by the Pakistan High Commission comes amid tension between the two countries after the Pulwama militant attack.
Many politicians, including Union Ministers VK Singh and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, as well as ex-minister MJ Akbar, have attended Pakistan’s National Day events in the past.
Pakistan Day is celebrated to mark the Lahore Resolution on March 23 each year.
