Saamana on New Parliament Inauguration: There has been a scathing attack on PM Modi regarding the inauguration of the new Parliament in Saamana. The President has also been questioned for not being invited to the inauguration ceremony.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated the new Parliament House. Earlier, Shiv Sena (Uddhav faction) has raised many questions regarding the inauguration of the new Parliament House in its mouthpiece Saamana. PM Modi has been attacked once again in Saamana. The editorial states that the inauguration of the new Parliament House is not in accordance with the beliefs and traditions. Capturing Parliament like this is a threat to democracy. Questioning the new parliament in Saamana, it was said that what was the need for it? In the article, it has also been told that the new parliament is unnecessary.
Face-to-face atmosphere of fear in Parliament
In Saamana, it was said that on the one hand a new Parliament is being constructed, while on the other hand there is an atmosphere of fear in both the Houses of the Parliament. The article said that not inviting the President to the inauguration of the Parliament is not in accordance with the old tradition and belief. Rahul Gandhi had demanded that the President should inaugurate the new Parliament. Later this demand was accepted by other opposition parties. Twenty parties, including the Congress, have also boycotted the inauguration ceremony.
‘Everything ‘I’ means Modi’
Targeting PM Modi in Saamana, it was said that not inviting the President and opposition leaders for the inauguration of the new Parliament means everything is ‘I’ i.e. Modi. It shows arrogance. In Saamana, it was said that Rahul Gandhi said that the Parliament is not made of bricks of ego, but of constitutional values. Not inviting the President to the inauguration is an insult to the highest constitutional post.
The need for a new Parliament House in Saamana was decided during the Congress regime itself. No one is opposing Central Vista either. The only issue is that not inviting the President to the inauguration of Parliament is a violation of constitutional convention.
