New Parliament Opening: Why is there a ruckus on the new Parliament House?  Complete story so far in 10 points

New Parliament Opening: Politics has heated up on the inauguration of the new Parliament House. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to inaugurate the new Parliament House on 28 May. The opposition is the attacker on this. The Congress has demanded that the Parliament House should be inaugurated not by the Prime Minister, but by the President. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge even went so far as to say that it seems Dalit and tribal presidents have been made only for electoral gains. Congress has also raised questions on the date of inauguration. Let us know what has happened so far in this whole controversy.

What happened so far – 10 big things

  1. Congress is also angry with the date of inauguration of the new parliament building. Vinayak Damodar Savarkar’s birth anniversary is on 28th May. BJP’s love for Savarkar is not hidden from anyone and he is one of the biggest icons for it, while Congress targets Savarkar. The Congress has said that choosing the date of May 28 for the inauguration is an insult to the nation builders of the country.
  2. BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia, calling the Congress ‘useless’, said, ‘Veer Savarkar is the pride of every Indian. Those who are questioning the dates, tell them that they are insignificant, not even worth the dust at the feet of Veer Savarkar."
  3. Union Minister Hardeep Puri said, it is the habit of the Congress to create controversy where it does not exist. While the President is the head of the country, the Prime Minister is the head of the government and leads the Parliament on behalf of the government, whose policies are implemented in the form of law. The President is not a member of either House while the PM is.
  4. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has repeatedly accused the President and former President of insulting decorum by not inviting them for the inauguration. Former President Ramnath Kovind was not invited for the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new Parliament building, nor has President Murmu been invited for the inauguration, Kharge wrote in a tweet. 
  5. Earlier, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said it wrong to have the inauguration done by the Prime Minister. Rahul Gandhi had said that the President should inaugurate the new Parliament House, not the Prime Minister.
  6. The Aam Aadmi Party alleged that by not inviting the President to the inauguration ceremony of the Parliament House, the BJP has insulted the tribals and backward communities. AAP MP Sanjay Singh said that BJP is inborn opponent of Dalits, OBCs and Adivasis.
  7. Asaduddin Owaisi said, why should the Prime Minister inaugurate the Parliament? He is the head of the executive, not the legislature. We have separation of powers and Hon’ble Speaker of Lok Sabha and Chairman of Rajya Sabha can inaugurate. It is made with public money, why is the PM behaving as if his ‘friends’ have sponsored it with their personal funds?
  8. Opposition parties are planning to hold a meeting, in which all can together take a big decision regarding the inauguration of the new Parliament House.
  9. The Lok Sabha Secretariat had informed on May 18 that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Parliament House on 28 May. Arrangements have been made to seat 888 members in the Lok Sabha of the new Parliament and 384 members in the Rajya Sabha. The current Parliament House has a seating arrangement of 550 members in the Lok Sabha while 250 in the Rajya Sabha.
