RSS Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat with President Pranab Mukherjee

In a sudden turn of events, President Pranab Mukherjee invited Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat for lunch on Friday at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Bhagwat, who was in Rudrapur on Thursday for the Sangh's volunteer education and training programme, reached the national capital on Friday for the meeting.

The timing of the meeting, which comes just ahead of the presidential election, has triggered speculation in some political quarters. The RSS said it was a pre-decided courtesy meet and there was nothing to read into it.

Earlier too, Bhagwat had called on Pranab Mukherjee to extend Diwali greetings.

Both Bhagwat, whose name was proposed by Shiv Sena for the next president, and the incumbent Mukherjee have ruled out themselves from the race for the top constitutional post.
