In response to Congress turning down an invite to attend the inauguration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya on January 22, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday stated the grand previous occasion was given a “golden opportunity to reduce its sin”.
In a submit on X, Sarma stated: “The @VHPDigital had given the Congress occasion a golden alternative to scale back its sin by extending their management an invite to attend the Shri Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha Mahotsava.
“Although, in my humble view, they didn’t deserve such an invite on the first place for his or her views in opposition to the Ram Mandir from the very starting.
“By accepting this invitation, they could have symbolically offered an apology to the Hindu Samaj. However, like Pt Nehru did with the Somnath Temple, the Congress leadership did the same with the Ram Temple. History will continue to judge them as an anti-Hindu party.”
He additionally hooked up a letter by Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh dated January 10 of formally declining the invitation.
