The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is planning to invite Congress President Rahul Gandhi for an event next month in Delhi, sources say.
The event will be held between September 17 and 19. But apart from the Congress president, several other opposition leaders, like Sitaram Yechury of the Left, are also likely to be invited.
Sources say the event will focus on "the India of the future". According to the organisation's Twitter handle, the event will be a three-day lecture series titled "Future of Bharat: An RSS’ perspective” by Sarsanghchalak, Dr Mohan Bhagwat.
In June, the Congress was upset when former president Pranab Mukherjee, a veteran leader of the party, attended an RSS event and addressed it.
Rahul Gandhi had recently compared RSS with Muslim Brotherhood during a speech in London.
