His decision to put off the week-long visit for Haj also comes amid speculation of an impending reshuffle in the union cabinet.

Khurshid was to leave to for Haj on Sunday and was to return at the end of the next week.

He has been under attack from Arvind Kejriwal following a TV sting which alleged that the Zakir Hussain Memorial Trust run by the Minister and his wife had misappropriated funds meant for providing equipment to the disabled.

Khurshid had refuted the allegations even as the Uttar Pradesh government is probing them.
