Nirmala Sitharaman loses luggage on Air India flight, misses G-20 reception

Cairns, Sep 19: Union Minister of State for Finance Nirmala Sitharaman, who lost her luggage while travelling from India, missed the evening reception organised in the honour of the G-20 ministers.

"Sorry to miss the evening reception at the Palm Cove, Cairns. Staying put in the room. No word yet on my lost luggage," Sitharaman said in a tweet.

The minister, who travelled to Australia to represent India at the G-20 meeting of Finance Ministers and central bank governors, lost her luggage on an Air India flight.

"Landed in Sydney to take a connecting flight to Cairns. My checked in luggage not traceable," Sitharaman said in her earlier tweet.

"On board my connecting flight to Cairns. All my formal wear in the lost suitcase! Not sure I can buy Saris in Cairns! Situation precarious!," she said.

"Air India - had a word of praise for the music collection on board. But now my luggage missing. Hopefully, you'll get it in time for me," she added.

The G-20 meeting will held here on September 20-21.
