PM not going to Pakistan

President Musharraf's invitation appears to have left Prime Minister Manmohan Singh cold.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he has no plans to visit Pakistan to see an ongoing cricket match between to nations.
"The Prime Minister had no plans to view any of the three test cricket matches or the five one-day internationals in Pakistan, "said Navtej Sarna, spokesman of the Indian foreign ministry.
"I do not mind inviting him (for the cricket matches) at all. I want the peace process to move forward. If he comes here, and we do nothing about the peace process, I am afraid we are wasting our time, "Musharraf said.
The analysts said cricket was not the only thing on his agenda. "He wants the opportunity to show to the world that India is not serious about carrying forward the peace process, "said an analyst.
