Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday virtually ruled out his going to Pakistan to watch a cricket match between India and Pakistan in the on-going series citing his busy schedule.

Asked about the possibility of watching an Indo-Pak one-dayer in Pakistan, Singh told reporters in Guwahati that he had a very busy schedule, including the Republic Day.

"But, I have got an invitation to visit and will certainly go there," he said in an apparent reference to his in-principle acceptance of an invitation from President Pervez Musharraf during their meeting in New York last September.
