RSS founder is a great son of India: Pranab 

Pranab Mukherjee, who is today in Nagpur to attend its annual valedictory, surprised many by eulogizing RSS's founder KB Hedgewar as a great son of Bharat Mata.  

'Today, I came here to pay my respect and homage to a great son of Mother India," the former President today wrote in the visitor's book at Hedgewar's birthplace in Nagpur, Maharashtra.  

Explaining why the Hindu nationalist organization invited the former Congress leader, the RSS today noted, "It is customary to annually invite personalities who have rendered significant contributions to the Indian national life."  

The organization has also commented that whatever Pranab says will be taken as an advice.
