As a symbol of the obligation to sustain just governance for the country, the installation of the sceptre, or “Sengol,” in the new Parliament building would be a historic event for India, according to Union ministers and BJP leaders on Wednesday.

आजादी के बाद भारत को विदेशी शासन से सत्ता का हस्तांतरण एक आध्यात्मिक प्रक्रिया से सम्पन्न हुआ था, जो प्राचीन भारत की एक सुदृढ़ परंपरा रही है।— Amit Shah (@AmitShah) May 24, 2023

Witness the history as the sacred Sengol takes its place in the new Parliament building by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi Ji, reminding us of the responsibility to uphold righteous governance for the nation.
Nitin Gadkari, the union minister for transport and highways, posted a tweet that read, “Watch history as the sacred Sengol takes (installed at) its place in the new Parliament building by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reminding us of the responsibility to uphold righteous governance for the nation.”
On the eve of India’s independence in 1947, priests from Tamil Nadu gave the precious Sengol as a gift.
On May 28, witness Prime Minister Narendra Modi place it in the new Parliament, he said.
