“I have no idea. I have not looked at the agenda. I know what the agenda was a week ago but I don't know if there is a revised agenda,” external affairs minister Salman Khurshid told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

“I would think one prepared the agenda much in advance. You cannot take any visiting dignitary by surprise.

"There are many levels at which these investigations are taking place. It is only in due course that it reaches the highest level. I am not sure of the agenda,” he added.

BJP attacks Antony
The BJP Monday attacked defence minister AK Antony on the chopper deal, saying he was "guilty" too as the deal came about during his tenure, and said it will raise the issue during the upcoming budget session.
