 There are just a few weeks till the Pran Pratishtha of Ram Lalla at the Ayodhya temple, and party sources said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal received a letter a few days ago advising him to set aside his dates because he would be receiving an official invitation to the ceremony soon.But according to party sources, there hasn't been a formal invitation since.Meanwhile, the Congress declined the invitation to Lord Ram Lalla's "Pran Pratistha" ceremony, which is set for later this month in Ayodhya, accusing the Ram Temple inauguration earlier in the day of being an event of the BJP and RSS.   Senior Congressmen Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury 'declined' the invitation to the major Ayodhya event, according to a statement from the party's general secretary, Jairam Ramesh."Last month, the Congress President and Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson, Sonia Gandhi and the Leader of the Congress Party in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury received an invitation to attend the inauguration ceremony of the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya to be held on January 22nd, 2024," the statement read. In our nation, millions of people worship the Lord Ram. Religion is a deeply personal topic. However, the Ayodhya temple has long been a political initiative for the BJP and RSS. It is clear that the BJP and RSS officials pushed for the opening of the unfinished temple in order to win political points. It further stated, "Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury have respectfully declined the invitation to what is clearly an RSS and BJP event, while abiding by the 2019 Supreme Court judgment and honoring the sentiments of millions who revere Lord Ram."On January 22, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to attend the installation of the Ram Lalla idol at the great shrine. According to representatives of the temple, the event will take place over seven days, beginning on January 16.
