Top Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Wednesday "respectfully declined" the invitation to attend the Ram Temple consecration ceremony, with the party accusing the BJP of making it into a "political project" for electoral gains and asserting that religion is a "personal matter". Announcing the decision of Congress leaders in a statement, party general secretary Jairam Ramesh also questioned the motive behind the inauguration of the "incomplete" temple by the leaders of the BJP and the RSS.

India TV also asked an opinion 'Will Sonia Gandhi-Kharge not attending Ram Mandir Pran Pratistha prove to be suicidal for Congress?' While 87 per cent said that the party will have to face the ramifications in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, 10 per cent were of the view that there will be no effect on Congress' prospects. 3 per cent remained undecided.
