A function hosted by L K Advani to celebrate 50 years of marriage to his wife Kamla saw many senior ministers in attendance. Besides Ananth Kumar, MP from Karnataka, Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh attended. The Opposition was represented by Praful Patel and Amar Singh. Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not attend, but sent his wishes. The high point of the evening was Mr and Mrs Advani exchanging varmala. The event was planned by their daughter Pratibha. The next day, Sonia Gandhi's office released a letter she wrote to felicitate Mr and Mrs Advani, adding that she had completed 47 years of marriage to Rajiv Gandhi, suggesting that Sonia romantically still regards herself as married to Rajiv, who was assassinated in 1991.
