Ending speculations, Pranab attends Rahul's IftarJune 13, 2018 22:10
Former president Pranab Mukherjee was among prominent political figures who attended an Iftar hosted by Congress president Rahul Gandhi this evening.
Mukherjee was seen conversing with Gandhi and several other senior Congress leaders.
There was considerable disquiet in the Congress after Mukherjee accepted an invitation from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to address its workers at Nagpur.
However, the party later complimented him for his speech at the RSS headquarters.
There was a buzz that Mukherjee was dropped from the Congress guest list after he attended the RSS function on June 7.
'Good food, friendly faces and great conversation make for a memorable Iftar! We were honoured to have two former Presidents, Pranab Da & Smt Pratibha Patil ji join us, along with leaders from different political parties, the media, diplomats and many old & new friends, Rahul tweeted with a photo of Iftar. -- PTI
