SAD chief to attend inauguration of new Parliament building

New Delhi, 24/5: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal will attend the inauguration of the new Parliament building in Delhi on May 28, party leader Daljit Singh Cheema said on Wednesday, amid 19 Opposition parties announcing a boycott of the event.

The country is getting a new Parliament building and it is a moment of pride, and “we do not want any politics to be played at this time”, Cheema said here in an apparent reference to the boycott by parties such as the AAP, the Congress and the TMC.


The Opposition parties have said the prime minister’s decision to inaugurate the building by himself, “completely sidelining President Droupadi Murmu, is not only a grave insult but a direct assault on our democracy which demands a commensurate response”.
