New Delhi: After stoking controversy and questioning the January 22 ‘Pran Pratishthqa’ ceremony, Congress leader Udit Raj has yet again attacked the enthusiasm and jubilation surrounding the Ram Mandir consecration ceremony. With the Centre announcing half holiday for all central government offices and states like Assam, Odisha, Rajasthan and Tripura following suit, and Uttar Pradesh announcing public holiday too, INDI leader Udit Raj has questioned as to why public holiday is being announced on January 22 over the Ram Mandir opening.

“India is a secular country and according to the constitution, there should not be a holiday for one religion. Our country has not yet become a Hindu nation. They (central government) are trying to declare this country as a Hindu nation,” Udit Raj alleged.

“Dr BR Ambedkar had said that if India becomes a Hindu rashtra, it will bring with it destruction. I think this is the beginning of destruction,” Udit Raj further claimed.

Responding to Udit Raj’s comment, Kameshwar said, “INDI alliance is rejecting the Ram Mandir consecration ceremony invitation.”
