Ranchi: PrimeMinister Narendra Modi inaugurated the new Parliament building on May 28. As many as 20 parties, including the Congress, have announced a boycott of the event, triggering an attack on anti-BJP parties. Meanwhile, Jharkhand BJP leader Babulal Marandi described the new Parliament building as a gift for future generations.
Former Jharkhand CM Babulal Marandi tweeted, "The newly built temple of India's democracy is going to be inaugurated. The new Parliament House is the center of the hopes and aspirations of the countrymen, the spirit of India is the new Parliament House. The new Parliament House is a gift to our future generations, a reflection of India's growth story. Let us all participate in this national festival and sacrifice ourselves in the yagna of "New India". Bharat Mata Ki Jai. The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) has described the BJP's anti-tribal and anti-Dalit character by not inviting the then President Ram Nath Kovind to the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new Parliament building and now not inviting President Draupadi Murmu for the inauguration.
At the same time, the Congress is also attacking the BJP on this issue. BJP whip Biranchi Narayan said, "Congress and JMM are today describing themselves as pro-tribals, so why did they not make a tribal president before 75 years of independence?"
