ANI Photo | “Why are they trying to do politics”: BJP leader Nalin Kohli slams Congress on declining Ayodhya’s invite

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nalin Kohli on Thursday slammed the grand old party for declining the invitation to attend the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya and questioned the Congress for trying to do politics over the grand event in the holy city.
“If they don’t wish to be there, then why drag the RSS and the BJP, and why are they trying to do politics over Lord Ram Temple’s consecration?” lashed out at the BJP leader.
Speaking to ANI on the subject, Kohli said, “It is for the Congress party’s top leadership to decide whether they would like to be present on January 22 for the consecration of Lord Ram and the grand temple opening in Ayodhya.”
He also criticised Congress for denying the very existence of Lord Ram. “It should come as no surprise because the Congress party when in government, had denied the very existence of Lord Ram in an affidavit that they filed before the honourable Supreme Court,” he said.
He took on Congress for blaming the BJP and the RSS and for dragging them over their refusal to attend the “Pran Pratishtha” of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya on January 22.
“However, what one notes is that they are trying to blame the BJP and the RSS. If they don’t wish to be there, then why drag the RSS and the BJP, and why are they trying to do politics over Lord Ram Temple’s consecration?” added Kohli.
“Secondly, one sees that within the Congress party, different leaders in the states are saying they wish to be there for the pran pratishtha ceremony,” he said.
“This perhaps reflects the internal situation in the Congress party and the different views that exist about Lord Ram’s temple in Ayodhya,” said the BJP leader.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi on Thursday also came down heavily on Congress, saying that the top brass of the grand old party has declined the invitation to attend the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony of Ram Lalla in Ayodhya only for the “sake of appeasement.”
Pralhad Joshi, while speaking to ANI said that the Congress Party has reached the ‘heights of appeasement’.
This comes after the Congress dubbed the Ram temple consecration ceremony as a “BJP/RSS event.”
Dubbing the ceremony as a “BJP/RSS event,” Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury would skip the ceremony scheduled to be held on January 22
