PM Modi: Back from his three-nation visit to Japan, Papua New Guinea and Australia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a dig at the Opposition for their decision to boycott the inauguration of the new Parliament building.
The PM arrived in Delhi Thursday morning.
He referred to his community event in Sydney where a crowd of over 20,000 people turned up to hear him. He said the Prime Minister of Australia, former PM and the entirety of the opposition were in the audience. They were together for the sake of their nation, he said.
“The former Prime Minister was also present in that function. There were MPs from the opposition and the ruling party. All of them took part in the community event,” the PM said.
‘Strength of democracy’
“This is the strength of democracy. All of them together participated in this program of the Indian community, ” Modi said.
The PM also slammed the Opposition for questioning Centre for exporting Covid vaccine to foreign countries during the pandemic.
“In times of crises, they asked why Modi was giving vaccines to the world. Remember, it’s the land of Buddha, it’s the land of Gandhi! We care even for our enemies, we are the people inspired by compassion!” PM Modi said.
The new Parliament building will be inaugurated by the PM on Sunday. However, 20 parties have announced to boycott the inauguration.
‘Assault on our democracy’
“Prime Minister Modi’s decision to inaugurate the new parliament building by himself, completely sidelining President Murmu, is not only a grave insult but a direct assault on our democracy… This undignified act insults the high office of the President and violates the letter and spirit of the constitution. It undermines the spirit of inclusion which saw the nation celebrate its first woman Adivasi President,” the Opposition parties said in a statement.
“Undemocratic acts are not new to the Prime Minister, who has relentlessly hollowed out the Parliament. opposition Members of Parliament have been disqualified, suspended and muted when they raised the issues of the people of India… When the soul of democracy has been sucked out from the parliament, we find no value in a new building,” they added.
