Shifting to the new building
Bidding adieu to this Parliament building is an emotional momentAll of us are saying goodbye to this historic building. The decision to construct this building was taken by foreign rulers but we can never forget and can proudly say that the toil, the hard work and the money that went into the construction was that of my countrymenWe may go to the new parliament building, but the old building will inspire the next generationsFrom Nehru, Shastri to Vajpayee, many leaders have presented their vision of India in this ParliamentMany tears have been shed in the Parliament. Nehru, Shastri and Indira Gandhi lost their lives during their tenure. We bid them adieu with tears in our eyesToday as we leave this building, I would also like to remember some journalists who dedicated their lives to the ParliamentThere was a terror attack (on the Parliament).

Rembering Past Leaders

G20 and Chandrayaan-3

This time too (referring to the G20), they were confident that there will be no declaration. However, it is India’s strength that it happenedIndia will be proud that when it was the president (of the G20), the African Union became its member.
Contribution of Women in Parliament
Initially, the presence of women in the parliament was not very significant, but with time our mothers and sisters have contributed a lot to both houses
