Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday for not extending an invitation to President Droupadi Murmu to the inauguration of India’s new Parliament building. Kharge alleged that the BJP had invited film actors to the event while excluding the President, calling it an “insult to the president” and questioning the party’s motives.

Addressing a rally in the poll-bound state of Rajasthan, Kharge stated, “Congress has people from all communities. BJP doesn’t even let anyone come near.” He further emphasized the significance of President Murmu’s constitutional position and raised concerns about the exclusion.

Kharge also recalled a previous incident where the BJP allegedly did not invite then-President Ramnath Kovind to the foundation-laying ceremony of the new Parliament building. Kharge asserted that this omission was based on caste discrimination, stating, “If the foundation laying was done by an untouchable, then naturally it would have to be washed with Ganga water.”

The Congress leader questioned the Narendra Modi government’s intentions behind the women’s reservation bill, suggesting that the BJP was reluctant to provide reservations for women. He noted that the BJP’s interest in the bill coincided with upcoming elections and the formation of the INDIA bloc by several opposition parties.

In a separate event, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and party leader Rahul Gandhi laid the foundation stone for the new building of the Pradesh Congress Committee in Jaipur. The Congress announced that their office would be constructed in the Mansarover area of the city.
