Delhi: PM Narendra Modi is going to inaugurate the new Parliament House on May 28. But, before the inauguration, a political battle has started about the program. 19 opposition parties have boycotted the inauguration ceremony. The ruling BJP has attacked the opposition by reminding them the history. Many BJP leaders have come forward and strongly criticized the decision of the opposition.
Talking about the decision of 19 opposition parties to boycott the inauguration ceremony of the new Parliament House, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi said that this is a historic moment. Politics should not be done for the same. It is unfortunate to give importance to a pointless issue and boycott the program. I would appeal to them to reconsider their decision and please do join it. He added that the speaker is the guardian of the parliament and the speaker has invited the prime minister.
On the other hand, Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said that they should look into their conscience. The government has constructed the new Parliament House in record time. During previous governments also, the Prime Ministers have inaugurated or laid the foundation stone. At the moment the opposition parties think from a narrow view point, this is not correct.
According to Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the decision taken by the opposition shows that they do not have faith in democracy and the temple of democracy. This is not just a building of Lok Sabha of India, it is the building of the strength of New India. In 1975, Indira ji inaugurated the Parliament Annexes building, Rajiv Gandhi ji laid the foundation stone of the Library of the Parliament, was it anti-democratic?
Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya, criticizing the decision of the opposition, said that these are people who do not have any point and they look at the Parliament House of country as an election ground. The Parliament of India is the temple of the democracy and boycott of the inauguration ceremony of the temple does not suit any political party.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the boycott was certain. They never thought that the construction of the building would be completed in such a short time.
