Who hasn't been invited or will be missing? 

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar stated on Wednesday that he has not received an invitation for the consecration ceremony of the Ram Temple. He expressed his views, saying, “I have not been invited to the inauguration of Ram Temple... The BJP is doing politics in the name of Ram Temple... The ruling party does not have any concrete program to garner people's support, so it seems they are trying to create a different opinion.” Additionally, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo and former Chief Minister of Bihar, Lalu Yadav, has declined an invitation to attend the ceremony.
