Pranab Mukherjee to chair an RSS event as a chief guest; A gallant political gesture?

Of what might come as an astounding stand coming from him, former President Pranab Mukherjee has accepted the Rashtriya Sevak Sangh's invitation to chair an event of theirs as the chief guest. RSS honcho Mohan Bhagat extended the invitation to Mukherjee; something he did earlier as well during Mukherjee's tenure at the President's office but was turned down. The event is supposed to take place at the Sangh Headquarters on June 7. This has left the Congress red-faced and the outrage only seems to escalate.
