PM Modi likely to unveil State Emblem on new Parliament next week
The Winter session of Parliament is all set to be held in the new Parliament building. As part of this process, the first step is to be held today.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the State Emblem atop the new Parliament building on Monday at a low-key function attended by Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, among others. Last month, the Ashoka Emblem was placed atop the under-construction building. The metal sculpture was built by artists Sunil Deore and Lakshman Vyas. The earlier design incorporated a spire atop the building. It was replaced with the Ashoka Emblem in 2020. Work on the new Parliament, a ground plus two-storey triangular-shaped building, is expected to be completed before the Winter Session of Parliament.
Is there a bigger, grander design behind all this? Isn’t the census about to be undertaken? Is there going to be a redistricting of constituencies pan-India? Will a 10-lakh-voters per Member of Parliament rule be implemented? Wait and watch!
