Among others, sources said invitation has been extended to former UP Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, who according to his party leaders have decided to give it a miss.

Meanwhile, sources said there are 'chances' that Mayawati attend the same.

"But there is no confirmation yet," according to the source.
