Prime Minister Narendra Modi held his first address in the newly inaugurated Parliament building on May 28. Calling it an immortal day, the PM said, “More than just a building, the New Parliament reflects the aspirations and dreams of 1.4 billion people. It sends a powerful message to the world about India’s unwavering determination.”
He continued, “The New Parliament will be a testament to the dawn of Aatmanirbhar Bharat. It will be a witness to our journey towards a Viksit Bharat.”
The PM further stated that the new Parliament will become witness to the rise of a self-reliant India.
PM Modi installed the sacred Sengol in the new Lok Sabha chamber after performing the Puja. The Adheenams handed over the Sengol to the PM to install in the new Parliament building. The Sengol marked the transfer of power from the British to Indians during independence in 1947. The PM said, “It is our good fortune that we have been able to restore the pride of the holy Sengol.”
The new Parliament building has the capacity to hold 888 members in the Lok Sabha and 384 members in the Rajya Sabha.
