President Pranab Mukherjee was scheduled to visit Germany, Luxembourg and Cyprus from September 14 to 20 and all preparations were in place, including the selection and constitution of the delegation. But, at the last minute, the trip was called off since the MEA -that had originally planned the trip – discovered that German Chancellor Angela Merkel would be out of the country for the UN General Assembly during the planned trip period. Mukherjee’s visit was planned to explain the Indian position on the NSG to Germany, but in the absence of the German chancellor, it would have been fruitless.  So Rashtrapati Bhavan wants to know how the goof-up occurred since the President’s visit was planned well in advance.
