Prime Minister Narendra Modi proposed that the structure where the meetings of the Constituent Assembly were held to draft the Constitution be referred to as “Samvidhan Sadan” as the Parliament moved from the old building to the new one on Tuesday. PM Modi stated that every law passed by the Parliament, every discussion held, and every signal sent should support the aspiration of India while speaking at an event in the Central Hall attended by members of both Houses.
Referring to Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, PM Modi made a suggestion for giving a new name to the old parliament building which has seen history being made.
“I have a suggestion. Now, when we are going to the New Parliament, its (Old Parliament building) dignity should never go down. This should not be left just as the Old Parliament building. So, I urge that if you agree, this should be known as ‘Samvidhan Sadan’,” he said.
PM Modi urged political parties to consider the future of the nation rather than just their own political interests when making decisions.
“We have to make the right decisions at the right time for the future. We cannot restrict ourselves to just thinking about the political benefits…Knowledge and innovation are the demands and we should focus on it. After Chandrayaan-3’s success, our youth is inspired by the science and technology sector. We do not have to miss this opportunity,” PM Modi said.
