Sonia to meet president

New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) Congress president Sonia Gandhi will call on President Pranab Mukherjee on Monday evening, party sources said.

The meeting comes as the party has been aggressively attacking the “communal” central government and amid speculations that the Congress president may raise the incidents of communal tension that were on the rise in the country.

The sources, however, called it a “personal visit”.

Sources added that Sonia Gandhi would lead a delegation of Congress MPs to the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday.

Gandhi has said India’s history of unity in diversity was in danger due to communal ideology and the “incidents of hatred” in the country were the outcome of the “planned conspiracy”.

“The country’s honour is at stake, as India’s glorious history of unity in diversity is in danger due to some communal ideology,” she said while addressing the 29th ‘Indira Gandhi Award for National Integration’ function on October 31.
