The Rashtriya Janata Dal compared the new Parliament building design to a coffin on Sunday, prompting a furious retort from the Bharatiya Janata Party, which said that voters would bury the Bihar party in such a coffin in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
The ruling party in Bihar tweeted a picture of a coffin and the new assembly building side by side and asked, “What is this?” as Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened the new structure.

The country will bury you in the same coffin in 2024 and will not give you the chance to join the new temple of democracy, the BJP’s spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia responded.
The decision has been made that the coffin belongs to you and the parliament building to the nation.
