India’s new Parliament building is scheduled to be inaugurated on Sunday i.e. 28 May. At least 19 opposition parties have raised objections saying that the President and not the Prime Minister should inaugurate the new Parliament building.
Opposition parties led by the Congress will boycott the event, saying the decision of the PM to inaugurate it himself and “completely sidelining” President Droupadi Murmu insults the high office of the President and violates the letter and spirit of the Constitution.
“The President is not only the Head of State in India but also an integral part of the Parliament…. The Parliament cannot function without the President. Yet, the Prime Minister has decided to inaugurate the new Parliament building without her,” the joint statement of like-minded opposition parties read.
The 19 opposition parties said Article 79 of the Constitution of India states, “There shall be a Parliament for the Union which shall consist of the President and two Houses to be known respectively as the Council of States and the House of the People.”
