I did not expect this from Pranab da: Ahmed Patel on Pranab visiting RSS headquarters

New Delhi: Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel joined the bandwagon of Congress leaders opposing former president Pranab Mukherjee’s visit to RSS headquarters in Nagpur.

Terming her father’s decision to join the RSS function and deliver speech there a mistake, Pranb’s daughter Sharmishta Mukherjee who is also Congress leader yesterday said Pranab’s speech at RSS function will be forgotten but visuals will remain.

“Whatever I have to say, I will say in Nagpur. I have received several letters, requests, and phone calls, but I haven’t responded to anyone yet,” the former president had told a Bengali daily.

While former finance minister P Chidambaram urged Mukherjee to tell the RSS what was wrong with their ideology, Jairam Ramesh requested the former president to not attend the event.
