"So proud of Indian govt's firm stand on bycot of SARC mtg & overwhelming support by member nations (sic)," Tata tweeted.

The tweet by Tata Group Chairman Emeritus received nearly 10,000 likes and was re-tweeted more than 6,400 times.

Amid heightened tension with Pakistan over Uri terror attack in which 18 jawans were killed, India had announced its decision to pull out of the Summit late last night citing increased "cross-border" attacks.

Apart from India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Bhutan have also pulled out of the Saarc Summit in Islamabad to be held in November, indirectly blaming Pakistan for creating an environment which is not right for the successful holding of the meet, resulting in its collapse.
