Why is there a controversy around the opening of the new Parliament building?

For the impending inauguration ceremony, 20 opposition parties came out in opposition to the Centre. They jointly issued a statement in which they voiced their displeasure with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s choice to open the new parliament building while “completely sidelining President Droupadi Murmu.”

This decision, according to them, is “not only a grave insult, but also a direct assault on our democracy.” Opposition parties, including the Congress, Left, and TMC, have jointly declared their intention to boycott the inauguration in protest at this, calling it a “undignified act.”

Amit Shah, the union home minister, responded on Wednesday and pleaded with the parties not to polarise a crucial subject for India’s democracy.

“All have received invites from the government. According to their emotions and sentiments, people would respond to the government’s invitation, according to Shah.

PM Modi poked fun at the opposition parties who were abstaining from the event as he arrived at Delhi’s Palam airport on Thursday after wrapping off his three-nation trip of Japan, Papua New Guinea, and Australia.

He made a comparison between the incident and the Indian community gathering he spoke at in Sydney, when Anthony Albanese, Australia’s prime minister, as well as the opposition leaders showed up for the good of their country.
