Apparently miffed over his exclusion from the first round of ministry formation, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah skipped the swearing-in-ceremony. Instead, he flew to South Africa to watch the last leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket matches being played there.

A few hours later his son and J&K CM Omar Abdullah said PM Manmohan Singh had assured Farooq that he would be inducted into the Cabinet in the first expansion — likely to take place on Tuesday.

“We are not upset about the ministerial berth... There is no question of feeling betrayed,” Omar told HT over the phone.
