As Prime Minister Narendra Modi prepares to open the new parliament building on Sunday, May 28, the lawmakers of Jammu and Kashmir came together in support of him on Thursday.
The new parliament building’s opening has been called a source of national pride for India’s 140 million constituents.

Politicians in J&K have said that individuals who choose to skip the event are making a political error and would be remembered for being on the wrong side of history, despite the fact that administrations may belong to a select few parties.


As reported by Greater Kashmir, former deputy chief minister Muzaffar Hussain Baig believes there would be no issue if Prime Minister Narendra Modi opens the new parliament building.

If the president lays the cornerstone, he must also perform the inauguration, and vice versa if the prime minister lays the cornerstone. The Prime Minister just laid the cornerstone for the new parliament building. For the opening of the new parliament. He then said, “He may even have a statue of himself erected outside the structure.

Baig said that a few individuals were intentionally trying to stir up trouble where none existed.

“There is a saying that a politician wants to create an issue, while a statesman wants to solve the issue,” Baig said.

When asked who should open the new parliament building, Apni Party President Altaf Bukhari told Greater Kashmir that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should.

The Prime Minister has equal authority in a parliamentary system. In India, the Prime Minister is chosen by popular vote since his party is the biggest. We do not have a system of direct elections for the presidency. Bukhari said that the prime minister and president are both chosen by the people.

He stated the Prime Minister’s plan to open the new Parliament building with a ceremony was OK with him.

However, “it is a fact that the opposition will try to find an issue with everything,” Bukhari remarked.

But, he said, the same parliament denied the people of Jammu and Kashmir the benefits of democracy by demoting J&K’s statehood and preventing them from exercising their right to vote.

But the reality is that Narendra Modi has earned the right to inaugurate the government as prime minister. Since he came up with the idea and implemented it, he deserves credit. Bukhari deemed it acceptable for him to open the new parliament building.

Imran Reza Ansari, a former minister and the general secretary of the People’s Conference, told Greater Kashmir that the new Parliament building was a favourite project of PM Modi’s and that he launched and saw it through to completion during his term in office.

There’s no need to turn it into a partisan issue or skip the inauguration. During his time in office, he was able to finish what had long been a personal goal of his. It’s OK for him to launch the initiative in his capacity as PM, he assured them.

Ravinder Raina, president of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Jammu and Kashmir, told Greater Kashmir that Narendra Modi, as prime minister of India, should be the one to open the new parliament building.

He said that Prime Minister Modi should be the one to officially open the new parliament.

“If the PM inaugurates it, there is no wrong in it,” he said to Greater Kashmir.

According to Raina, the parliament’s historic structure is where the democratic process has been conducted for the last seventy-five years.

We appreciate the historic significance of the original structure, but we recognise that the new building owes its existence to the personal initiative of our Prime Minister and to the unrelenting efforts of our PM to see it through to a timely completion. “Therefore, he is eligible to perform the ceremony of its inauguration,” Raina concluded. He argued that it would be appropriate for the Prime Minister to officially open the new Parliament building, as it would house the elected Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members.

The opposition “has no vision and no problems to discuss, so they resort to propaganda and trying to create a false narrative,” the author writes. Raina predicted that anyone trying to create a problem where there is none would fail.

When confronted with no actual controversy, senior BJP leader Devender Singh Rana lashed out at the opposition.

The Prime Minister of India is the country’s duly elected leader and the Parliament serves as its spiritual home. He assured Greater Kashmir that there was no problem with the prime minister opening the new parliament.

Rana said that the opponents scored another point by stirring up this “unnecessary row” after leaving with no genuine problems.

The mayor of Srinagar’s municipal government, Junaid Azim Mattu, has declared he has no problem with the Prime Minister opening the country’s new seat of democracy.

The Prime Minister is credited with conceiving of and nurturing the whole enterprise. This endeavour is his own. This achievement fulfilled a lifelong ambition of his. A minor point, he said, brought up by the opposition.

Mattu said that it is mostly irrelevant for the Prime Minister to open the new Parliament building in a parliamentary democracy.

I believe that recognition should be given where it is earned. The new parliament building and the Kartavya Path were his dream projects, regardless of one’s political affiliation with the governing party, the PM, or the government, he remarked.

Mattu said that the opposition first cried foul, arguing that the new parliament building should not be built since the existing one should be preserved for historical sake.

Nothing inappropriate about having the PM perform the opening ceremonies. The newly elected representative of the people inaugurating the country’s new home of democracy is an appropriate homage to democracy, he added.
