NEW DELHI, Nov 9 � External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid will head the Indian delegation at the CHOGM Summit to be held in Sri Lanka next week with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh deciding against undertaking the visit in view of the opposition by parties in Tamil Nadu as well as a section in the Congress, reports PTI.

The decision on the level of Indian representation and Singh skipping the meet will be communicated to the Lankan government by tomorrow, sources said. �The Prime Minister is likely to write to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa by tomorrow regarding his decision,� government sources said.

However, there was no official announcement over Singh�s decision to skip the Commonwealth Heads of Government Summit on November 15-16.

Political parties in Tamil Nadu and several other outfits have opposed India�s participation at any level in the CHOGM meet alleging that the Sri Lankan government had committed gross violation of human rights and had no plans to devolve powers to the ethnic Tamils.
