On Sunday, May 28, the nation will be honoured with the inauguration of the new parliament building, which will be led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Om Birla.

Even though the precise information about the inauguration has not been made public, ANI reported that it will happen in two phases.

— The ceremonial preparations for the inauguration will start early in the day and are anticipated to take place under a pandal (canopy) next to the Gandhi statue in Parliament. The ceremony is expected to include participation from PM Modi, Om Birla, Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Hariwansh, the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, and a few senior government ministers.

— Following the pujas, the dignitaries will tour the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha chamber locations in the new structure.

After conducting a few ceremonies, the hallowed “Sengol” will be placed in the Lok Sabha chamber directly next to the Speaker’s chair. Priests from Tamil Nadu, including the original goldsmith who designed it, will be there.

The morning portion of the celebration will complete at around 9:30 am, and the second leg is scheduled to start at noon with the singing of the national anthem in the Lok Sabha chamber in front of all the dignitaries, including Prime Minister Modi.

— The address will be given by Hariwansh, the deputy chairman of the Rajya Sabha, who will also read a written message of congratulations from Jagdeep Dhankar, the chairman of the Rajya Sabha. On this occasion, the President Droupadi Murmu will also read a prepared message.

— Two brief audiovisual films will also be screened for the dignitaries in attendance to discuss the building’s significance and the process of establishing the new parliament.

The Lok Sabha Speaker, who serves as the guardian of the Parliament, will also speak at the event.

— The Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha has also been given time to speak on the occasion. Mallikarjun Kharge, the leader of the opposition party, is not expected to attend the ceremony on Sunday, as a number of opposition groups and the Congress party have declared a boycott of the event.
