Pranab Invite Row: RSS Issues Statement


New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has issued a statement over the invitation that has been sent to and accepted by former President of India Pranab Mukherjee and the subsequent furore that has broken out on account of his long association with the Congress party.

RSS statement said “This isn’t surprising for those who know & understand the Sangh, because RSS has always invited prominent people of the society in its programmes. This time, we invited Dr Pranab Mukherjee & it’s his greatness that he has accepted our invitation.”

Before the RSS has issued its statement, the impending presence of the former President at Nagpur on June 7 at an event organised by the Sangh had caused a number of Opposition leaders to speak out against him.
