Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the construction site of the new parliament building in Delhi late this evening. PM Modi, clad in a white kurta churidar along with a safety helmet, was seen inspecting the work-in-progress.
This was the first time that the Prime Minister was visiting the site of the building whose construction amid the pandemic have received a lot of criticism from the opposition parties. The opposition parties say the project should be stopped to save funds for management of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The main Central Vista project envisages building a new Parliament House, a new residential complex to house offices and the Prime Minister and the Vice President. It will also have new office buildings and a Central Secretariat to accommodate various ministries’ offices.
