Amit Shah, the union home minister, announced on Wednesday that “Sengol,” a historical sceptre from Tamil Nadu that was given to the first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, to symbolise the handover of power from the British and kept in an Allahabad museum, will be installed in the new Parliament building, which will be opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 28.
According to Shah, the installation’s aim has never changed.
He asserted that the transfer of power involves more than just shaking hands or signing papers and that it must maintain ties to regional customs while also taking into account contemporary necessities.
Jawaharlal Nehru felt the same way on August 14, 1947, and Sengol “represents that feeling,” he remarked.
The new Parliament building, according to the home minister, is an illustration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision.
At the inauguration, 7,000 workers (shram yogis), according to him, would be honoured.
All political groups, who were free to behave in accordance with their wisdom, were sent invitations to the inauguration of the new Parliament Building, according to Shah.
