Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a surprise visit to the new parliament building. On Thursday evening, he visited the parliament building and spent an hour inspecting it. He inspected various works at the upcoming complex and also interacted with the workers. This is not the first time that he has paid a surprise visit to the site. The pictures of the new, upcoming parliament building are out now. Take a look.
PM Modi Inspects The New Parliament Building
Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the new parliament building accompanied by Urban Affairs Secretary Manoj Joshi and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. He observed all the various facilities that will be coming up at both Houses of Parliament after the construction is completed.
Modi interacted with all the workers and the officials on the construction site. He was briefed about the upcoming complex’s progress by the officials. Earlier in 2021, PM Modi visited the site of the new, upcoming complex in the month of September. He inspected the work in progress at that time as well.
Hence, this wasn’t the first time that he had paid a surprise visit to the spot. In 2020, Modi laid the foundation stone for the new building.
A New Complex For 21st Century India
The new parliament building, which is under construction, is technology driven and state-of-the-art. The building is almost ready, with some finishing touches and equipment testing left. It has enough space for offices and also has multiple conference rooms.
With various artworks and decorative displays, the new building proudly displays its roots in the Indian ethos. There are three India galleries in the building. One of these galleries will display all the monuments from all the union territories and states in India. Another one will display the craft of pottery, and the third one will have textile installations. (As reported by The Indian Express)
The new building is being constructed by Tata Projects Ltd., which was awarded the project for ₹971 crore in 2020.
