Shinde meets Sonia Gandhi amid music launch controversy

October 29, 2013 16:41 IST

Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Tuesday met Congress chief Sonia Gandhi amid the controversy over his attending a music launch function of a Bollywood film hours after the serial blasts in Patna on Sunday.

However, it is immediately not known what transpired in the 20-minute meeting between Gandhi and Shinde at 10 Janpath in New Delhi.

Shinde on Sunday had attended the music launch of film 'Rajjo' starring Kangana Ranaut in Mumbai, a few hours after serial blasts rocked a rally in Patna which was attended by Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

The BJP criticised Shinde for attending the function and alleged that it has become a habit of Union ministers not to give attention to governance.
