Before PM Modi inaugurates the new Parliament building, a number of Vedic rites will be carried out, according to sources. On Sunday, the new Parliament building will be officially inaugurated by Prime Minister Modi and Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Om Birla.
Even though the precise information about the inauguration has not been made public, ANI has learned from trustworthy sources that it will happen in two stages.
Around noon, the inauguration ceremony will start. On the other hand, preparations would start the morning before the event.
However, it is well-known from trustworthy sources that a lavish ceremony will occur on Sunday morning beginning at 7:15 am.
Numerous events, including puja, will take place during the inauguration beginning on Sunday morning. PM Modi will then receive the Sengol and install it following a ceremony. The plaque will then be unveiled when the diya has been lit.
Additionally, there will be a Sarv Dharma Sabha and PM Modi will speak with Shramjeevis.
PM Modi will honour the construction worker for their contribution on the Parliament.
Puja, a Vedic ritual done before the inauguration event, will commence at 7:30 am. These pujas will continue till nine in the morning.
According to insiders, the ceremonial preparations for the swearing-in would start early in the morning and most likely take place under a pandal (canopy) next to the Gandhi monument in Parliament. The event is expected to include participation from PM Modi, Om Birla, Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Hariwansh, the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, and a few top government officials.
It is said that after the pujas, the dignitaries would tour the new building's Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha chambers. After conducting several rites, for which priests from Tamil Nadu, including the original goldsmith who crafted it, would be present, it is expected that the hallowed “Sengol” will be put in the Lok Sabha chamber, exactly next to the Speaker's chair.
According to the sources, a prayer ritual will also be held on the grounds of the new parliament building.
The morning portion of the celebration will conclude at about 9:30 am, and the second leg is anticipated to start at noon with the singing of the national anthem in the Lok Sabha chamber in front of all the dignitaries, including Prime Minister Modi.
All invited individuals, including lawmakers, the speaker of the Lok Sabha and the chairman of the Rajya Sabha, as well as other notable visitors, are anticipated to be seated in the Lok Sabha chamber of the new structure by 11:30 a.m.
The Deputy Rajya Sabha Chairman, Hariwansh, will speak during this part of the ceremony. He will also read a written message of congratulations from Rajya Sabha Chairman, Jagdeep Dhankar. On this occasion, President Droupadi Murmu will also read a written message.
In fact, two brief audio-video clips will be shown as well so that the dignitaries in attendance may discuss the new parliament's building, construction process, and importance.
The custodian of the Parliament, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, will also speak at the event.
The Secretary-General of the Lok Sabha will then give the Vote of Thanks to conclude the event, according to the sources who spoke to ANI. PM Modi will also release a coin and stamp in honour of the historic occasion.
The event is scheduled to start at approximately 12 o'clock and end at around 1:30 o'clock.
On the eve of the opening of the new Parliament building, on Saturday, the Adheenams (priests) presented PM Modi with the holy sceptre, “Sengol.”
The “Sengol” memorial, which served as a reminder of the British Empire's handover of sovereignty to India, will remain in the new Parliament building.
PM Modi released a video of the new Parliament Building on Friday, saying that the landmark structure will make all Indians proud.
The new Parliament building would make every Indian proud, Prime Minister Modi said in a tweet. This video gives viewers a look of this famous structure. Please share this video with your own voiceover that expresses your feelings, as I have a special request. I'll tweet some of them again. Remember to utilise the hashtag #MyParliamentMyPride.
The new Parliament building's construction was a monumental undertaking. It also saw numerous significant construction tasks being completed off-site. Additionally, materials from all throughout the nation were used in the building.
According to government representatives, sandstone (red and white) was purchased from Sarmathura, Rajasthan, while teak wood was acquired from Nagpur, Maharashtra.
The carpets for the new building's floors were bought in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh.
The flooring is bamboo wood, and it is from Agartala, Tripura.
They were acquired from Rajnagar, Rajasthan and Noida, UP Stone Jali Works.
Ashok Chakra was made using materials from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, whereas Ashok Emblem was made with materials from Aurangabad, Maharashtra, and Jaipur, Rajasthan.
A portion of the furnishings was purchased in Mumbai. Jaisalmer Lakha Red granite came from Lakha. Ambaji, Rajasthan, provided the Ambaji White marble. From Udaipur, Kesharia Green Stone was purchased.
The stone aggregate originated from Kotputali, Rajasthan, while the stone carvings were sourced from Abu Road and Udaipur.
The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha false ceiling steel constructions originated from the UT of Daman and Diu, while the M-Sand and Fly Ash Bricks were purchased from Chakari Dadri in Haryana, the Brass Work from Ahmedabad in Gujarat, and the Pre-cast Trenches from NCR Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
The government is maintained by the new Parliament building, which represents the spirit of independent India (Aatmanirbhar Bharat).
The current Parliament building, which will soon be 100 years old, was finished in 1927. According to the current needs, this building was experiencing a space shortage. The effectiveness of the Members' work was being hampered in both Houses by the absence of suitable arrangements for the MPs' meetings.
In light of the aforementioned, the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha both voted resolutions requesting the government to establish a new Parliament building. Prime Minister Narendra Modi thus set the cornerstone for the new Parliament building on December 10, 2020. The newly completed Parliament building was constructed using premium materials in record time.
The newly built Parliamentary structure, which will contribute to the future development of India's illustrious democratic traditions and constitutional ideals, is now furnished with cutting-edge amenities that will enable the Members to carry out their duties more effectively.
888 members of the Lok Sabha will be able to sit thanks to the new Parliament building.
There is space in the current Parliament building for 543 Lok Sabha members to meet and 250 Rajya Sabha members to meet.
Plans have been developed for a gathering of 888 Lok Sabha members and 384 Rajya Sabha members in the newly built Parliament complex, taking future needs into consideration. The Lok Sabha Chamber will be the location of the joint session of both Houses.
The new Parliament building will be inaugurated on May 28. The Centre has received a verified list of 25 political parties, some of whom are not members of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), that will take part in the ceremony.
Other NDA parties that have confirmed their presence for the event on Sunday include AIADMK, Apna Dal, Republican Party of India, the Shinde faction of Shiv Sena, NPP, and NPF.
Several impartial parties, including the TDP, YSRCP, and Biju Janata Dal, will attend the inauguration.
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP), and Janata Dal-Secular are three opposition groups that will also be present at the event on Sunday.
Both physical and electronic invitations have been distributed for the opening of the new parliament building.
According to the sources, invitations have also been addressed to previous Lok Sabha Speakers and former Rajya Sabha Chairman in addition to current members of both chambers of Parliament. The inauguration event is open to all chief ministers as well. Additionally, invitations have been addressed to the Secretaries of each ministry within the Indian government.
Both renowned entrepreneur Ratan Tata, whose firm TATA built the new structure, and the lead architect of the new parliament building, Bimal Patel, have been invited to the opening of the new building.
A letter of invitation has also been addressed to a number of well-known individuals, including actors and athletes.
