New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated the new Parliament Building Inauguration to the nation on Sunday. The new building was inaugurated with vedic rituals and all-religion prayers.
The PM also installed ‘Sengol’ here. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla was also present along with the PM.
However, some opposition parties, including the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, Trinamool Congress and Samajwadi Party, boycotted the opening ceremony. Along with the BJP, parties like Biju Janata Dal, Telugu Desam, BSP and YSRCP supported the event.
NCP leader and MP Supriya Sule has said that the inauguration of the new Parliament building cannot be concluded without the presence of the opposition, it means there is no democracy in the country. This is an incomplete program. Three days ago, they were sent an invitation on WhatsApp. They could have contacted opposition leaders over phone.
“Our memories are attached to the old Parliament House. We all love the old Parliament house, that is the real history of India’s independence. But now we have to move to the new Parliament building,” NCP leader said.
