Advani invites Sonia, Rahul for tea in Parliament House

New Delhi: BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani, who turned 83 on Monday, had an unusual get-together over tea with Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi in Parliament House premises.

As the two leaders were waiting for their cars to come at a Parliament Gate after the address of US President Barack Obama, Advani whose office is close by invited them for a cup of tea.

The two leaders readily agreed and as they were having tea, they came to know that it was the birthday of the BJP leader and soon followed the greetings.

The chance encounter was significant as it comes a day before the winter session begins and the opposition is gearing up to attack the Government on a number of issues.
