New Delhi: Congress leader Manish Tewari on Tuesday targeted Union minister V. K. Singh, asking him to quit instead of expressing his disgust after he represented the government at the Pakistan national day reception here.

Tewari said in the past, ministers had refused to attend Pakistan events. “If Mr#duty#Disgust is so disgusted with double standards of his govt on Pak he should quit? Other ministers in past refused to attend PAK EVENTS!" Tewari tweeted.

After attending the Pakistan National Day reception at the Pakistan High Commission on Monday, Singh had issued a series of tweets defining “disgust" and “duty", indicating that he may have been unhappy at being deputed to it.

In the first of the five quick tweets, the former Army chief had said, “To offend the moral sense, principles, or taste of". This was immediately followed by another which said, “To sicken or fill with loathing". While the third tweet had said, “A job or service allocated," the fourth one said, “The force that binds one morally or legally to one’s obligations".

The last tweet had said, “A task or action that a person is bound to perform for moral or legal reasons". Singh had told reporters after attending the reception that he was asked by the government to represent it at the function.
