Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that not only the PM and members of the government participated in the program of the Indian community, but former PMs and opposition parties also participated in the program.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has returned to India on Thursday (May 25, 2023) morning amid the ongoing political uproar in the country regarding the inauguration of the new Parliament House. He was on a three nation tour of Japan, Papua Guinea and Australia. The Prime Minister has given a statement on solidarity as soon as he returns. He said that the government and the opposition in Australia were also together during the event.
During his three nation tour, the Prime Minister last visited Australia and stayed here for two days. During this, he met his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese over the attacks on temples there. There was also an Indian community event, which was attended by Anthony Albanese and other leaders. The Prime Minister said that not only the PM and members of the government participated in the program of the Indian community, but former PMs and opposition parties also participated in the program.
He said that this shows his respect for Indians and underlines the relationship between the two countries. Earlier, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar and BJP President JP Nadda also spoke and praised PM Modi’s leadership for India’s growing image and prestige in the world.
The new Parliament building in the country is to be inaugurated on May 28, but a political uproar has started over it. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Parliament House, but the opposition demands that the inauguration should be done by the hands of President Draupadi Murmu. On this, 19 opposition parties have decided to boycott the inauguration ceremony.
Accusing the government of completely sidelining President Murmu, the 19 parties said in a statement, “They see no value in the new building when the soul of democracy has been snatched away.” They also alleged in a joint statement that President Draupadi Murmu’s bypassing of the inauguration ceremony and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to inaugurate the new Parliament building was a direct attack on democracy.
