Ahead of Gujarat polls, Manmohan attacks Modi again on Pak collusion issue

Pakistan's former foreign minister Khurshid Kasuri yesterday dismissed as "a unusual story with no basis", the claim made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that Islamabad was interfering in the Gujarat Assembly polls.

Politics and its colours resurfaced once again on Wednesday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his predecessor Manmohan Singh greeted each other with folded hands and went a step forward by shaking hands as they came face to face at an event to mark the 2001 Parliament attack anniversary.

While it is not known whether Modi actually apologised to Dr Singh for dragging the latter along with former Vice President Hamid Ansari and former Army Chief General (retired) Deepak Kapoor into the "Pakistan conspiracy" row, news agency ANI did circulate photographs of the awkward meeting.
