Former president Pranab Mukherjee will arrive in Nagpur on Wednesday evening to attend a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) event amid criticism from opposition parties over his decision to accept the invite.
Mukherjee is slated to address the valedictory function of the RSS’s third-year officers’ training camp at its headquarters in Reshimbagh on Thursday. According to sources, he will stay for two nights at the governor house before leaving for the national capital on Friday noon.
Around 700 way from places across the country will participate in the camp, also known as the Sangh Shiksha Varga (Sangh training class). The RSS said it had invited the former president in keeping with a tradition of calling eminent people to the annual event.
The Congress leader’s decision to accept the invite has created a flutter in his party, with certain sections stating that doing so is akin to legitimizing the Hindutva fountainhead. Mukherjee was a minister in almost every Congress government elected from the time Indira Gandhi was the prime minister.
However, another section in the Congress felt that bridging the political divide was the need of the hour in a democracy so fragmented that it even hurts national interests at times.
Senior said there was nothing odd about Mukherjee accepting the invite, considering that he had called RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat to the Rashtrapati Bhavan during his tenure as president “despite their ideological differences”. He had also invited top RSS leaders to his book launch in Delhi earlier this year.
