India Prime Minister not attending CHOGM

From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 11 November 2013

India's Prime Minister has sent a letter to the Sri Lankan President, Mahinda Rajapaksa, expressing his inability to attend. The BBC's India correspondent, Sanjoy Majumder, says while the contents of the letter have not been made public, there is little doubt about the reasons behind him pulling out - the ill treatment of Sri Lanka's Tamil minority.
