Congress scion Rahul Gandhi is all set to host an Iftar party in the national capital Delhi on June 13. The guest list is likely to be a high-profile one, but some great faces may be missing from the picture. According to Zee news sources, in the Iftar party former President Pranab Mukherjee and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will not be invited.
As per Zee News sources told that former Vice President Hamid Ansari has also not been invited for Rahul Gandhi’s Iftar party, which will be held at Taj Palace hotel in the national capital. The Congress party is conducting an Iftar party after a gap of almost two years.
Shockingly, the report of Pranab Mukherjee not being invited for the party following the row after the former President attended an event of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Nagpur. The approval of RSS invitation by the former President had erupted sharp criticism from a number of corners, including senior leaders of the Congress party.
The senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel showing annoyance had tweeted that he “did not expect this from Pranab Da” while Mukherjee’s daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee had also taken to microblogging site Twitter, and warned her father of the consequences of attending the RSS event. She had tweeted that words would be forgotten while pictures would remain, alleging that the BJP and the RSS might use the pictures of the event in future for political put on.
