Party will take call on attending Ayodhya event: Ktk DyCM

Bengaluru, Jan 7 (UNI) Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar on Sunday said the Congress will take a call on attending the Pran Prathistha of Ram Lalla at Ayodhya on January 22.

“I have not been invited. Neither our chief minister nor I have been invited. Our party President Mallikarjun Kharge has been invited, but the party will take a call,” he told reporters here.

Shivakumar claimed that he being a Hindu, Lord Ram and Hanuman reside in his hearts. “I am a Hindu. I am a Ram and Hanuman bhakt. We all pray from here. We have it within ourselves, in our hearts. There is nothing to politicise here,” he said.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and CPIM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury are among other opposition leaders who have received the invitation.

The CPIM has already declined the invitation, calling it a “politicisation of religion,” while the attendance of Nitish Kumar is not yet confirmed.
