Earlier today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a historic move, marched from the old parliament to the new parliament with the other parliamentarians including Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, and Piyush Goyal among others.
He urged all the Members of Parliament to reaffirm the commitment to make India a developed nation by 2047 and described the move to the new Parliament building as a new beginning towards a new future.
The prime minister also suggested that the old parliament building should be called “Samvidhan Sadan” from here on.
“We are shifting to the new Parliament building. It is an auspicious day, it is Ganesh Chaturthi,” he said, addressing a function held in the Central Hall to commemorate the rich legacy of the Parliament of India “My suggestion is that as we are going to the new building, the glory of this building should never decline. It should not be called just the old Parliament… It can be named Samvidhan Sadan,” Modi said.
