Ashok Gehlot, the Chief Minister of Rajasthan and a top Congress official, advised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Speaker of the Lok Sabha Om Birla to consult one another about inviting President Droupadi Murmu to the inauguration of the Parliament building. Gehlot also asserted that it is “still not too late” to correct any “mistakes” the Centre may have made.

The CM claimed that the ‘sudden’ announcement of the inauguration was not done with dignity because structures like the new Parliament are only created once every almost 100 years.

A report in Hindustan Times quoted Gehlot asking about the emergency for which the inauguration is being rushed. He backed the call by Opposition parties to boycott the event.

On May 28, Prime Minister Modi is slated to inaugurate the new Parliament structure. Following the announcement, a dispute ensued as the opposition parties questioned the wisdom of having the Prime Minister inaugurate the new structure rather than the President. They argued that since President Droupadi Murmu is an essential member of Parliament, she should perform the honours.
