A decision on whether Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would attend CHOGM is still pending, with the external affairs ministry saying Saturday that India has not yet communicated to Sri Lanka on who is to attend the Commonwealth summit meeting in Colombo later this month.

External affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said at a briefing here that "we have not yet communicated the outcome of our internal process (of decision making) and will make it known once it is communicated (to Colombo)".

However, many media reports indicate that the prime minister is being prevailed upon by his party, many of his cabinet colleagues and Tamil Nadu parties to cancel his visit to register the country's displeasure over Colombo's insensitivity to minority Tamil issues.
