There was no use of such visits and therefore DMK would not be part of the delegation, he told reporters.

Lok Sabha MP TKS Elangovan was the lone DMK representative in the delegation to be led by Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj.

Earlier, AIADMK supremo and chief minister Jayalalithaa had announced withdrawing her party nominee, Rajya Sabha MP W Rabi Bernard, expressing dissatisfaction over the delegation's itinerary.
