It has been officially announced that a new parliament building will be constructed in Delhi at a cost of Rs 2,000 crore and Prime Minister Modi will inaugurate it on the 28th.
But the opposition parties are raising the war flag saying that Modi should not open it, the President should open it. 19 parties including Congress, DMK, Trinamool Congress, Aam Aadmi Party and Communist have announced that they will boycott the ceremony.
It is unfortunate that President Draupadi Murmu was not invited to the inauguration ceremony of the Parliament building. According to the Constitution of India, the President of the Republic is the first citizen in the Parliament, isn't she / he the prominent leader-? Can anyone deny this?
That is why 19 parties are going to boycott the function altogether. Is it democracy to open parliament without opposition parties? It is a national shame. This decision by Prime Minister Modi is a direct attack on democracy. The President is an integral part of the Parliament. The President must give assent to the Act of Parliament for it to come into force.
In short, Parliament cannot function without a President. Prime Minister Modi has decided to inaugurate the new Parliament building with his own hands without such a person. The opposition is justified in accusing the Modi government of subverting the very purpose of electing a tribal woman as the country's first citizen.
Be it Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha or State Legislatures, democracy cannot thrive if there is no opposition.
Prime Minister Modi, who is projecting himself as a great achiever on the world stage must have called the opposition leaders and found a solution to this problem as well.
Perhaps the BJP is imposing the theory of 'one nation, one leader' in this too? The people of the country are well aware of what is right and what is wrong. Do you know when the result will be known? The 2024 during the parliamentary elections!
