This is what senior Congress leader Dr Karan Singh, who put out a statement today saying that he supports the Pran Pratishtha ceremony, said about his party’s decision to not attend the Ram Mandir inauguration on Jan 22.
Karan Singh said, “It would have been ideal, of course, if political parties had come together on this issue. But I think it became very much of a party issue towards the end. But why they didn’t attend, I don’t know. That’s their own decision. I don’t want to criticise them one way or the other. Personally, I think if some Congress leaders had attended, it would have been a good idea. Kharge ji should have gone, I think. But it is their decision. I don’t want to criticise them.”
