New Delhi: Union Minister of State for External Affairs Gen(Retd) V K Singh has offered to resign from union council of ministers, according to sources.
According to sources, a high level meeting is presently going on at 7 RCR to discuss V K Singh's resignation offer.
The meeting is being attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
V K Singh is reportedly unhappy after he was asked to attend Pakistan's foundation day function at its embassy in presence of Kashmiri separatists leaders.
“I do not owe an explanation to anybody”, a dismissive Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh said today when asked about his cryptic tweets late last night using words “disgust” and “duty” after representing the government at the Pakistan function here.
The former Army Chief had been deputed by the government to represent it at the Pakistan National Day reception at the High Commission where Kashmiri separatist leaders were also present. He stayed for a brief while only.
