President cancels visit to Maharashtra

November 15, 2012 11:15 IST
President Pranab Mukherjee's two-day visit to Maharashtra, which was to begin from Thursday, has been cancelled, the Rashtrapati Bhavan said in a statement.

No reason was given for the cancellation which comes in the wake of reports that ailing Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray's condition has turned critical.

The President was to attend a function in Mumbai and then proceed to Shirdi on Friday for some functions associated with the Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust.
