NDA ‘unequivocally’ condemns opposition parties’ boycott of new Parliament inauguration

The new Parliament building in the national capital is all set to be inaugurated by the Prime Minister of the country, Narendra Modi. But this, according to the political opposition, is ‘sucking out the soul of democracy’, because the new building is being inaugurated by the Prime Minister, and not the Head of State, the President, Draupadi Murmu, as a result of which, the opposition announced its decision to ‘boycott’ the inauguration.

On Wednesday, the Congress, AAP, TMC, DMK, the left, RJD, JDU, NCP, Samajwadi Party, the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena faction, and AIMIM, along with others, said that they will not be a part of the inauguration.

Responding to this move, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), has now issued a press statement, saying that it unequivocally condemns the decision of the nineteen political parties to boycott the inauguration of the new Parliament building on 28th May.

The statement says, “This act is not merely disrespectful, it is a blatant affront to the democratic ethos and constitutional values of our great nation”. Adding, “Such flagrant disrespect towards the institution betrays not only intellectual bankruptcy but a disturbing contempt for the very essence of democracy”.

The statement further reads, “Regrettably, this is not the first instance of such disdain. Over the past 9 years, these opposition parties have repeatedly shown scant regard for parliamentary procedures, disrupted sessions, staged walkouts during crucial legislations, and demonstrated an alarming lackadaisical attitude towards the parliamentary duties. This recent boycott is just another feather in their cap of disregard for democratic processes”.
