The Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, Left, Trinamool, and Samajwadi Party, among others, have announced their decision to boycott the inauguration, citing the perceived loss of democratic essence.

In response to the opposition’s stance, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) criticized the decision to boycott the inauguration, deeming it a direct attack on democratic values and the constitutional principles of the country.
