Pranab at RSS event: This is what the mood in the Congress high command is like
The Congress clearly unhappy that its life-long member and former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee is attending an RSS event at Nagpur today. Many senior Congress leaders have spoken out against his decision, including his daughter who said that the speech at Nagpur would be forgotten, but not the visuals.
The latest to join the bandwagon is Ahmed Patel, whose tweet signals what the mood in the Congress high command is. He tweeted, " I did not expect this from Pranab da."

Pranab's daughter, Sharmistha Mukherjee took to Twitter and hoped the former president would realise how the BJP's "dirty tricks department" works and said that with his visit, he was giving the BJP and RSS "full handle to plant false stories". She was reacting to rumours that she would be joining the BJP.
"Hope @CitiznMukherjee now realises from todays' incident, how BJP dirty tricks dept operates. Even RSS wouldn't believe that u r going 2 endorse its views in ur speech. But the speech will be forgotten, visuals will remain & those will be circulated with fake statements (sic)," she tweeted.
