New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee's two-day visit to Maharashtra, which was to begin from Thursday, has been cancelled, a statement from the Rashtrapati Bhavan said.
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 Thursday for some functions associated with the Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust.
