Opposition unity shattered: Omar endorses Azad’s stand on new Parliament building

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 26: Although the name of the National Conference is included in the list of “like-minded opposition parties” which are going to boycott the function of the inauguration of the new building of the Parliament, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has virtually endorsed the stand of veteran politician Ghulam Nabi Azad on this burning issue.
“Setting aside the brouhaha about the inauguration for a moment, this building is a welcome addition. The old Parliament House has served us well but as someone who has worked there for a few years, a lot of us often spoke amongst ourselves about the need for a new & improved parliament building. Better late than never is all I’ll say & this one looks pretty damn impressive”, Omar tweeted amid raging controversy over the inauguration of the new Parliament building.
Omar also shared a video of the new Parliament building which is going to be inaugurated on May 28.
Netizens hailed the positive statement of Omar Abdullah and hoped that National Conference will attend the inaugural function of the building. “There may be disagreement with the government on any issue, but it is not right to reject such a glorious moment. I hope you and your party will witness this proud moment. Other parties who are currently opposing the event will also strengthen democracy by participating in this event”, one Prashant Awasthi tweeted. “Such a shame opposition will be missing out on the historic event, something that doesn't come even once in a lifetime. Most horrible will be the feeling each time MPs will enter the new building for the session and then find their names missing from the piece of history”, another netizen Vaibhav Mittal tweeted.
On Wednesday chairman of the Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) and former Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad exposed the duplicity of Congress on this issue.
Azad said that the construction of a new Parliament building was necessary. He said that it is good that it has been constructed but the idea was mooted when PV Narasimha Rao was the Prime Minister.
He recalled the conversation related to the need for a new Parliament building between him and then Speaker Shivraj Patil when PV Narasimha Rao was the Prime Minister.
“At the time when PV Narasimha Rao was the PM, Shivraj Patil was the Speaker and I was the Parliamentary Affairs minister, Shivraj ji had said to me that a new and bigger Parliament building should be constructed before 2026. The construction of a new building was necessary, it’s good that it has been constructed now,” he said.
Notable Congress and eighteen other opposition parties have decided to boycott the inauguration of the new Parliament building and stated that it “insults the high office of the President, and violates the letter and spirit of the Constitution”.
In a joint statement, the like-minded opposition parties said that Prime Minister’s decision to inaugurate the building by himself is “a direct assault on our democracy, which demands a commensurate response.” The new Parliament building will be inaugurated on May 28.
