New Parliament Inauguration: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday once again dealt a blow to the opposition unity. Naveen Patnaik’s Biju Janata Dal has announced to attend the inauguration ceremony of the new Parliament building on Sunday. The BJD rejected the opposition’s boycott saying that the President of India is the head of the country. The Parliament represents the 1.4 billion people of India. Both the institutions are symbols of Indian democracy and derive their authority from the Constitution of India.
The BJD believes that these constitutional institutions should be above any issue that may affect their sanctity and dignity. Such issues can always be discussed later in the House. Hence BJD will be a part of this momentous occasion.
