PM Modi has added new chapter to country's democratic history: BJP, Union ministers on new Parliament
New Delhi, May 28 (PTI) BJP leaders and Union ministers on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has added a new chapter to India's democratic history by dedicating the new Parliament building to the nation.
Modi inaugurated the new Parliament building this morning and hoped that it will become a cradle of empowerment, igniting dreams and nurturing them into reality. He also installed the historic 'Sengol' in a special enclosure on the right side of the Speaker's chair in the Lok Sabha chamber.
A Chola-era sceptre made of silver with gold plating, the Sengol has been described by the prime minister as a symbol of transfer of power from the British in 1947.
