Rahul Mahajan appears at BJP Executive
Rahul Mahajan, son of late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan, on Monday made a surprise appearance at the venue of the party's National Executive meeting in New Delhi.
The party's National Executive is being held in New Delhi for the first time after Mahajan's death early this month.
Asked about his presence at the venue, Rahul said BJP President Rajnath Singh had invited him for lunch.
However, he parried questions on speculation about his assuming any position in the party.
To a question whether there was any offer from Rajnath Singh in this regard, he said, "The party president will answer this question. I will do whatever the party president asks me to do."
The two-day national executive began with Rajnath Singh and other leaders paying homage to Mahajan, who was killed by his brother.

- "However, international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case-to-case basis," the Directorate General of Civil Aviation said. The suspension does not affect the operation of international all-cargo operations and flights specifically approved by it.
