Farewell to old Parliament building: MPs recall events, contributions

Members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha of the Parliament remembered historical events and the achievements of seasoned leaders over the past seven decades on the final day of Parliamentary sessions in the old building. The Opposition did not interfere with the Parliament proceedings, but it criticised the government on a number of fronts. Mallikarjun Kharge, the leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha, lauded Jawaharlal Nehru as a consensus builder who included opponents and claimed that in contrast to him, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hardly ever appeared in the parliament or made a speech.

The administration must introduce the women’s reservation law during the special Parliament session, according to demands made by the Congress, BRS, and other parties in the Rajya Sabha. According to Kharge, there are only 10% of women in the Lok Sabha and 14% in the Rajya Sabha presently.

Kharge lauded the first prime minister, Nehru, for establishing a solid democratic basis that, in his opinion, Congress maintained while it was in power. “Winston Churchill opined that India’s democracy would not endure. We are frequently questioned about our 70-year career. We maintained the safety of democracy in this way. He claimed that Nehru had appointed five non-Congress figures to his Cabinet, including SP Mookerjee and BR Ambedkar. Modi, he alleged, did not even visit the House. While Nehru did not wish to impose any restrictions, he claimed that the current administration was using the ED and CBI to undermine the opposition. Modi, according to Kharge, only spoke twice (outside of traditional declarations or responses to budgetary or other arguments). RS leader Piyush Goyal began a discussion on “the parliamentary journey of 75 years beginning with Samvidhan Sabha – Achievements, Experiences, Memories of the House” by saying Treasury and Opposition benches could disagree and criticise one another, but there shouldn’t be disruptions.

According to Goyal, the opposition’s job is to hold the government accountable while it works to advance the country through legislation. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani, Sushma Swaraj, M Venkaiah Naidu, Arun Jaitley, and Karan Singh were among the speakers and commentators he remembered. Our democratic system is unbeatable. He referred to the terror attack on Parliament and the declaration of emergency and asserted, “Nobody can defeat us.
