New Delhi | Several opposition parties have decided to boycott the inauguration program of the new parliament building. These parties have held talks on the issue and will issue a joint statement soon. They demand that the President should inaugurate it instead of the Prime Minister. Meanwhile, the formal invite for the event has surfaced. According to the invitation issued from the Lok Sabha Secretariat, the program will start on May 28 at 12 noon.
PM Narendra Modi will inaugurate in the presence of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. Several parties, including Congress, TMC and Aam Aadmi Party, have opposed this, saying that the new Parliament building should be inaugurated by the President, not the Prime Minister. May 28 is also the birth anniversary of freedom fighter Veer Savarkar. The opposition has also objected to this. On the allegations of the opposition, Union Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said – Congress has a habit of creating unnecessary controversies.
