Congress adds to Natwar's misery

December 15, 2005 18:28 IST

Former external affairs minister K Natwar Singh, who resigned from the Union cabinet in the wake of Iraqi oil payoffs controversy, has been excluded from all the committees constituted by the Congress for the AICC plenary session being held in Hyderabad from January 21 to 23.

Singh's name figures neither in the drafting committee nor in any of its sub-committees, including one to prepare the resolution on international affairs.

Singh, who was dropped from the Congress Steering Committee at its special sitting earlier in December, has also not been accommodated in the organising committee for the session.

The committees were constituted by party chief Sonia Gandhi and Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee is the convener of the Drafting Committee which has 16 members.
