New Delhi. Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Wednesday that the historic ‘Sengol’, a symbol of power transferred to India by the British rule, will be installed in the new Parliament House. ‘Sengal’ is now in a museum in Allahabad. Jawaharlal Nehru, the country’s first Prime Minister, took ‘Sengol’ as a symbol of the transfer of power from the British.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the new Parliament House on May 28. Shah said the purpose of setting up ‘Sengol’ was clear then and is still so. Transfer of power is not a mere handshake or signing of any document, he said. And it should be linked to local traditions keeping in mind the modern needs. He said, “Sengol today still represents the same spirit that Jawaharlal Nehru felt on August 14, 1947.”
The Union Home Minister said that the new Parliament House is an example of the foresight of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said, “In a way, the new Parliament House is a proof of the foresight of Prime Minister Modi. It is a beautiful attempt to connect our cultural heritage, tradition and civilization with modernity in building a new India.
He informed that on the occasion of inauguration, the Prime Minister will also honor 60,000 laborers (Shram Yogis) who contributed to the construction of the Parliament House. Shah said invitations have been sent to all political parties for the inauguration of the new Parliament building and they are free to take steps as per their discretion.
